When u upgrade, it should keep everything you have. The upgrade is only supposed to upgrade the operating system. It doesn't reformat your hard drive.

Hope that helps.

My personal experience is that upgrading is tricky it can lead to headaches....sometimes it's easier to backp everything and format.

Upgrading will keep your existing files on the hard drive. I'm not sure if it's Xp that prompts this, but refuse any conversions from FAT to NTFS file systems when upgrading. Ended up losing everything anyway.
