  1. Best answer
    If it's just the OS drive being replaced then it shouldn't be a big issue. However if you clean install the OS, you will have to reinstall all your software/programs. Data files (music, videos, documents,...) will be fine.
  2. Can you clarify if drive C, D, E, and F are all the same physical drive?
  3. Always backup; it's one of the laws of computer ownership is, if you have a backup you won't need it, if you don't have one you will need it.
