Yes it will overwrite your Win7 32 bit as is necessary to install 64 bit: Clean Install Windows 7

If you have data on the HD you should back it up as saving it on another partition is not wise. Use DVD's, an external HD, another computer on your network, or 15 gb free storage on Skydrive available with each Windows Live ID.

If you must save data on a partition on the same HD just make sure you' don't touch it during install, by choosing carefully by partition size when you get to Custom install>Drive selectxion screen.

Here are tips for getting a perfect clean reinstall of Win7: Reinstalling Windows 7

You could get into compression programs, but honestly, it begs the big question. If the data on your drive is that important...why isn't it backed up?

They may cost a little more now, but you should look into an external hard drive. Anytime you have important data, you need to have it backed up somehow.

well the bulk of what i want to save is 250 GB of DVD's. they arent important per se but it would suck to have to download or rip them all again.

Buy a 500gb-1tb external HD would be ideal.

As stated if you want to store them on a separate partition from the reinstalled OS then this can be done but you have to be very careful when booting the Win7 DVD that you choose only the OS partition for Install and not the storage partition. If you do this, the data should be preserved but no guarantees.
