Ok a friend of mine redid my hard drive and He said he partition 100 gigs of my hard drive for my hardware, and the other side (which is D drive) is for my downloads. The D drive isn't formatted yet so am I suppose to format so I can use because I don't want to screw anything up. I'm using windows 7 64bit if this helps.

Yes, you can format just the D drive without any issues, especially if there is nothing on it. If there is something on it, ensure that you back it up, as a format will completely wipe out all data.
