Do we even need to reformat? Reformating is to clear the unwanted files and caches right?

Nope, haven't format it yet. No reasons to do so. Still going strong to be honest.
Disk clean up and defragmentation yes, quite often.

What? Windows let you create separate partition for a reason,
nobody put all personal file together with system drive anymore unless it's a lappy or low end pc with only single drive.

Personal file or important one should store somewhere else, be it on cloud, external hdd, thumb drive or NAS, if Windows 10 have hiccup suddenly, you can just reset it without touching the personal files.

I just recently formatted my SSD (Kingston A400, 256GB) on Thursday as the Windows 10 2004 update was giving me some random BSODs and odd freezes lately. Then suddenly came a random crash where I was forced to restart the PC and after that, I'm unable to go into Windows.

That's when I decided to reformat it with a fresh installation of the Windows 10 2004 version (Installation media off this Windows 10 page). Did have to go through a few hassles when I found out that my TP-Link T9UH WiFi adapter is the one causing the BSODs after the installation. Finally managed to get it to install properly after a few retries and unplugging that adapter.

Seems to be running fine so far at my end. nod.gif

I do not think that it is a good idea to reinstall Windows many times. You can lose important data or break some system sectors that are important for the proper performance of your PC. I use the best PC repair software that can automatically clean the junk form my PC as well as to clean the registry. But I make the disc formatting only when I change SSD/HDD.
