I like to work in Linux but with access to the entire Windows folders. To avoid duplication when re-installing I have left most of the data files within Windows and only transferring those files and data that I work with at any given time and then save the newly updated files as appropriate in Windows or Linux.
I use Open Office to work with Word Processing / Spreadsheets / Databases among other file types. For photo manipulation I use either Gimp in Linux or Photoshop in Windows depending upon my needs at the time. Some other assorted applications where I do not have a suitable Linux alternative I run them using Wine. As a last resort I may run Windows to use other applications which cannot be run from Linux. Until such time that I can run everything from Linux, with or without "Wine", I will continue to run a dual boot system.
I hope that this explains the situation. Now if all else fails I will reformat the hard disk drive and install a fresh copy of Windows and Linux. In the process I will restore my last and recent Windows Backup. This way hopefully I will remove any remnants of all previous OS's and it should restore things as they were in the beginning.
Thanks for your interest.
