3 years. I know many things about computers and i can manage to have mine run smoothly even without often formatting. You can do this using utilities that clean registry and get rid of temporary files, also by using a good antivirus to prevent viruses from wandering in the hard drive. I only formatted that time cos i had to change motherboard, if there wasnt such reason i wouldnt format.

I have 4 systems but for resolving the problem I don't prefer to format the hard disc. I try to first troubleshooting then go to scan the systems eventhough the problem doesn't resolve then I have to format that.

Probably like two years. I have images of the hard drive stored though just in case.

1 year too as sometimes to remove some Trojan horses or virus it's only possible when you formated your pc.
