Hi, I have Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.10 installed on two separate hard disks. There are problems with my Windows 10 and refreshing or resetting solves the problem only temporarily (the issues come back after two or three logins). I am planning to clean install Windows 10 from USB. I have all my personal files in ubuntu. Will clean installing W10 affect my Ubuntu files? Is it safe to proceed without any additional setups? Thanks.
If Ubuntu and all your files are on a completely separate drive (not a portion), then you can be 100% certain by pulling that drive before wiping and reinstalling Windows. I’d suggest cleaning the Windows drive using diskpart before installing. It’s always nice to be certain there no junk left over.
