Hi all,I have a quick question for you.I have been dual booting windows 7&8 to try it out.I kinda like 8 so I would like to reinstall 8 on the 7 partition and get rid of 7.I have to use the 7 partition cuz 8 partition is only 40 gigs.My question is ,when I install 8 over 7 will it give me a windows old folder.Don't want to lose my stuff and don't really want to back up 300gigs or so.Hope you understand because now I'm confused.

Yes, if you upgrade over Windows 7, it will create the WIndows.old folder. I would make sure to backup all your data first to be safe.
