Windows 7 pro X64
Windows 8 upgrade and want to keep all data on old HD that has win 7


Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere but perhaps someone could lend me a hand. I just won a 180GB SSD from intel and was thinking of installing Windows 8 on it. I currently have a 1TB HD that has the windows 7 install on it.

My question is will I be able to do a fresh install of Windows 8 on the SSD and delete Windows 7 from the 1TB HD while keeping the rest of the data there or will the 1TB drive need to be formatted to get rid of the windows 7 install?

If the answer is yes will windows 8 do the cleanup for me(I can dream) or will I have to do it manually?

Thanks for any help guys and gals!
