I have instlled windows 7 in my c: drive and booting files are stored in another drive(d: drive). Due to this problem im unable to store my important files in d: drive. If I save my important files in that drive whenever I want to chnge the OS I suppose to format the two drives c: and d: drives. so I may lost my important files. please give me the solution.

its because you installed windows 7 with 2 hard drives connected so both get written to the boot record

disconnect drive D

fix boot record

then reconnect drive D for storing data

due to some reasons i have installed my windows7 OS in D: drive and now I have changed my OS and I installed windows7 OS in C: drive, and before installing the OS I have formatted both C: drive and D: drive during progress of OS installation. Now what my problem is OS is installed in C: drive and Booting Files are installed in D: drive. I have reffered google and I copied the Booting Files into C: drive but Iam unable to format my D: drive and I dont know my system uses Booting files in C: dive or it uses Booting Files in D: drive
