Nope. It will leave the registry as is...


But it will break any shortcuts or registry entries pointing to any programs or data installed on D:

formating with just wipe everything from a specific partition, including program files and windows files, provided that they are on that partition.

If you want to turn this into one big disk again, you'll want to remove all the partitions and just recreate one big one.

If you want to clean the registry the best way would be to uninstall the stuff on D through windows...
