    Ok I don't understand well what you mentioned before...

    You have formatted you drive C with a new installation and then you see that D also was formatted. Is that what you say?

    If yes then this may be an error that you click on and format the partition D as normally it should only format the one you have chosen.

    part of "D" drive got formatted. I am sure that I have selected "c"

    If you're not sure then you may have selected Drive D too!!! Have you lost important files with this mistakes?
