No, I don't think you would have to reformat it, only have to reformat when you get a new mobo or you got a bad virus.

ok i did add the drive runs fine turns out its an identical drive only i cannot get to the pictures i had or notepad stuff,and i cannot open any programs on that drive unless theyre installed on the boot drive, what do i have to do to make a raid config? reformat boot drive? what does reformatting in windows do to the added drive? idont se what good it will do to have the other drive unless i config raid0 for performance right? for gameing?
