that means formatting the computer correct? will that remove all of the windows files on any of my drives?

it will only remove the files on the C drive (that is if you reinstall it on that drive). basically it will delete all files on the drive you install the OS on, so any other files on any other drive will remain intact

The thing is when i first built my system i had both of my drives connected so it installed a system reserve on my D: drive, so im wondering if that's gonna get deleted as well, i dont mind completely formatting both drives

id say remove everything but i want to clarify something. when i said " reinstall windows " i meant downloading the media creation tool and creating a bootable usb and choosing the delete everything option that way you are sure your copy of windows is 100% new
