Might sound like a dumb question, but.
I have two 300gb hard drives. Primary is OS C:\ and Restore E:\, and
Secondary is Data D:\
If I do a factory restore from the E:\ partition will it overwrite any
files on the secondary HDD

Probably not, but who knows how a Dell restore works. Don't take
chances. Disconnect the second drive, run the restore, than re-attach
the second drive... Ben Myers
