Speaking from upgrading from 8.1 (3 times) everything should be preserved,as it's an in place upgrade.

Of course, that doesn't mean something won't go wrong, so be sure to take backups

All files of any importance should have at least one backup copy, 2 or more backup copies if the files are of particular importance. This is doubly important when doing something like an OS upgrade. There are too many ways that things can go wrong, too many opportunities for user error to be without backups. Recovery of data after an incident is problematic and cannot be relied on.
