I just bought a new HP laptop at what I thought was a great price.
It has a 1T hard drive and unfortunately Win 10. I haven't fired it up yet and figured I'd try to do a little research first. It's been seemingly forever since I've "worked" on a computer. I remember partitioning drives and at least on Dells there was a method to revert the whole system to original factory new condition.
My thought was to have the drive partitioned such that only the OS partition gets redone leaving the rest of the drive where all my files are kept untouched.
This may not be possible as i seem to recall partitioning has to be done during formatting before the OS is installed.
