    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
