No it shouldn't, you have an Apple avatar, what pc do you have?

if you're worried that it might happen disconnect the slave drive, restore, reconnect slave drive.

Sysetem restore should not delete anything on your pc. but to be safe remove your slave drive if you are going to restore

I assumed he was referring to the Sony Restore disks as opposed to Windows System Restore, in which case "everything" would be deleted as the c drive would be reset to its original status.
