Windows 2000 NTFS Permissions

I need to reinstall Windows 2000 Server in a machine that has W2000 Server running as a domain controller. Operating system is installed in partition C. I have a D partition with data in it, and most important, NTFS permissions configured in every folder. Those permissions reference to domain accounts and groups.

The goal is to keep the permissions for the D partition.

I plan to do the following:

- dcpromo to unistall active directory. No problem with this, i have some more DC's in the domain. The server does not hold any of the operation masters.

- format partition C, and reinstall windows 2000 server.

- add the server to the domain and leave it as a member server.

THE QUESTION IS:

will the permissions for the D partition still be there, referencing domain account and groups ?

Thanks

Yes, that should be fine.  As long as the machine remains a member of the domain and the domain continues to exist, then wiping and reinstalling C: should not affect permissions on D:  To be absolutely safe, I'd also run a Windows Backup on the D: drive and save it to a file.
