Windows 7: Quick Q about my HDD

Quick Q about my HDD

I downloaded Windows 7 and Im ready to install. Im upgrading from Home Premium Vista to Windows 7 Professional.

Obviously my C: will be completely wiped on the clean install, but what about my D: drive. I believe it is a partition. Will this get wiped too, or will my data stay on it?

Your D drive is safe... I will not be touched..

The installer is very smart. It doesn't mess with anything it doesn't need to so there is absolutely no worries. Your D:\ drive will be perfectly fine and usable upon the upgrade and retain all data.

You are correct. Only the partition is wiped. D: will be fine. But you should be backing up your data. Dont worry about a backup now.

Good luck and let us know if you need help
