I have win7 Home Premiume 64Bit and I just got Win7 PRO. 64Bit on Disc with Key.


I know I can put the Win7 PRO. Disc in and on the screen click on Upgrade.


But will this wipe all my programs out I have?

And any Folders I have on my Desktop and my Folders on my Limited Account Desktop will they be wiped out?

Hi biferibiferi :)

Usually, since you only upgrade from one edition of Windows to another, and not a version to another, you should have an option to keep all your files and programs. Upgrading editions simply unlocks new features in Windows and doesn't really reinstall it since there's no need for that. The upgrade takes around 10 minutes to complete. Here's a tutorial on SevenForums showing you how to proceed.


If you have any questions, let me know.
