    Hi all... I have a harddrive with 2 partitions. Is it possible to do a
    format on 1 partition and leave the other one intact?

    Absolutely. Just use the command FORMAT n:
    n = drive letter to be formatted.

    If you want to put the system on to the drive, use FORMAT n:/S
    S = system.
