    Is it possible to update my current version of Windows 7 to Windows 8? Will it delete my previous files which in the system?

    I am planning to go for an upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8, but am afraid whether it will delete my files in the system? Will it delete everything? How to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8?

    Hi,
    I totally understand your problem and have looked for its solution.The answer to your first question is Yes. You can upgrade to windows 8 from your windows 7 with some fee. Microsoft has made sure that its users can upgrade to the latest operating system with actually loosing there inportant data.But the Windows 8 full version is ot available at present so you can book it online and then upgrade it eventually.
    Hope i was able to satisfy your query

    hello dear,

    you can upgrade windows 7 to windows 8 just form the control panel..during update only the program files will be changed,it will not delete any of your files from other drives.so dont worry..as soon as windows 8 is released go update it...

    And for loosing the dqat a.You can do one thing you can copy the data of "C" into any other drive.

    And while upgrading you should only choose "C" for upgration and other remain the same

    Window Up gradation


    Windows upgradation is best way to move on to next windows version while keeping your previous files , programs from earlier windows in place.

    Before upgrading , keep in mind which version can be upgraded to which version of 8.

    Feature name Windows 8 Windows 8 Pro Windows RT
    Upgrades from Windows 7 Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium
    x
    x
    Upgrades from Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate x


    Some other important issues :->

    If you are using windows 7 (32 bit ) then it can be upgraded to windows 8 (32 bit ) only.

    When you are installing , chose Upgrade instead of custom option to keep your files intact.

    After installation , install the Windows 8 updates to upgrade drivers.

    Hello my friend, IT is possible to upgrade your computer from windows 7 to windows 8. But as you know microsoft hasn't released the final version of windows 8 yet. Unlike other editions of windows it will come only in three versions i.e 1)Windows 8 2)Windows 8 pro 3)Windows RT out of these only first two will support the laptop and desktop,while the third one is specifically for tablets PC which runs on ARM processors. you can upgrade to windows 8 by paying only $14 which is basic ,and this offer will end on feb 2013. And yes don't worry ,your data will be completly safe.Nothing will be deleted. ALL THE BEST.

    dear friend,

    Of course-you can upgrade your windows 7 to the windows 8 online.

    You have to go to the Microsoft official website.

    Pay some charges & follow the instruction in the upgrade option to download windows 8.

    It'll also delete previous system files.

    but you'll not get the full version of windows 8.

    It'll be better if you uninstall windows 7 & install windows 8 manually.

    Windows 7 operated computers can be upgraded to Windows 8 without hassle, but there are few riders involved.

    1. Which version of Windows 7 you are using, is important.

    You need to run compatibility test from www.microsoft.com to be sure that the Windows 8 installation will be successful.

    2. Depending on which version of Windows 7 you have installed in the computer it can be said whether Upgrade or Install is possible.

    3. If you can Upgrade your data should remain untiuched, however , backing up all data is vital to prevent accidental loss.

    Consider them.

    Hi My Friend,

    YES, it possible to upgraded with out delete any files.()
    But, it may be clean your C-Drive.
    So, At first you have to transfer all the data from your C-drive to any other drive.
    Then you can upgrade your windows.

    My partner and i absolutely fully grasp your issue and still have looked for it is solution.The step to the first question is Yes. You may upgrade for you to home windows 8 out of your home windows 7 with a bit of fee. Microsof company has made sure it is people can upgrade for you to the latest os in this handset together with truly losing there important data.But a Windows 8 100 % type is definitely ot out there currently in order to guide it on the internet and then upgrade that eventually.
