Fresh Install of Windows 10 on SSD Without Losing Data?

Hello everyone; I've encountered problems with the AMD graphics driver I installed. I have asked AMD for help. Unfortunately, they couldn't diagnose the issue, so they recommended I do a fresh install of windows. I'm looking for a way to perform the fresh install without losing data because I have about 3TB of data on my computer.
