I have 2 NTFS partitions. I plan to do a clean install of Vista side by side with my xp installation.

However the drive i plan to install to (D: )  already has quite a few files on it. Is it possible to install vista on that drive without formatting it so that I dont lose all the files on that drive?

I read somewhere that this is indeed possible in Vista if your partiton is already NTFS formatted. Is this true?
