    No, it will not.

    Your clean install is done on C drive and affects only C drive.
    Other drives/partitions remain untouched.

    I don't believe so.
    I have had several clean install of Windows 10. Never had to reinstall or update the drivers.

    Either way, no matter what, you NEED to create a backup before doing this. Is your data critical to you? If so then create a BACKUP on external media. Anything can happen when doing this and, 9 out of 10 times it'll be fine, it's better to be safe than blaming Windows for a hard drive error.
