How often do you reformat your personal computer?

By Paper_boy558 ·
Personally in the past i often formatted my laptop every two months or so because i often experimented with the operating system and broke something or just trying out a new setup. Currently i haven't formatted for almost year because 1: I don't see the need right now. 2: I don't have enough backup space to backup everything that is on my machine. What is your reason for reformatting (or not) your personal machine?

Once a year or two... however it is quick for me since all I really have to backup is bookmarks and a few minor things because all my personal data is stored on a separate hard drive. I don't keep anything like that on the C drive.
