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.

If you want to fresh install Windows on a new SSD without losing data, you must back up your data before starting the clean installation. Under such circumstances, professional backup software, like EaseUS Todo Backup, comes to help.

The steps to clean install Windows 11/10:

Step 1. Click Start > Settings > click Update & security.

Step 2. Click Recovery, then click Get Started under Reset this PC.

Step 3. As we perform a clean install, I will choose "Delete everything"; however, you can also choose "Keep my files" if you like.

Step 4. Click Reset to start.

Step 5. Windows 10 will restart.

Step 6. Preparing to perform a reset.

Step 7. Resetting might take some time, depending on the amount of data.

Step 8. Windows will start to check the drive for errors and fix them.

Step 9. Windows 10 will perform a clean installation again.
