    Hello my friend
    You can upgrade from windows 7 to Windows 8 RP and you can keep all these files

    • Programs
    • Windows settings
    • User accounts and files

      and you won't lose any data.
      To keep files, programs, or settings you need to install Windows 8 Release Preview by starting your installation from within Windows.
      Don't boot from the installation media like DVD OR USB.
      the easiest way to upgrade your system is to just visit this page and download OS and follow the instruction.

      ALL THE BEST.

    Hi,
    Upgradation of Operating System like Windows to Windows dont let your data get vanished unless something goes severely wrong while installation, like a crash, or a hang where you need to force shut down and nobody knows what goes where.

    Generally while upgrading all the programs will be recognized due to backward compatibility of the OS, Settings in existing windows will be remembered, and other dataes will be carried to the new archieve of updated OS. These things wont get lost.

    Do follow a process to run the windows upgradation from within existing windows platform and not from external booting platform.
    Do not let new Windows to set new partition and format that partition, just simple upgradation will do everything you need.
    For emergency you can back up your vital dataes in disk in case something goes wrong, but again upgradation doesnt destroy data.
    Thank you.

    Hello,
    You need an iso file of windows 8 or any bootable device.
    If you have the iso file you can mount it on virtual drive using softwares like Daemon tools, power iso and open it
    Then you can double click on autorun option. Then the setup of windows 8 will start.
    After few steps it will ask you to choose between two options:
    1. Upgrade
    2. Custom Installation

    There you have to choose upgrade then your the windows 8 system will have your current files and folders, all the programs of your previous operating system.
    If you choose custom install then your files will be deleted and a fresh windows 8 will be installed.

    You can also do one more thing. You can install your windows 8 on different drive then windows 7.
    Then all your data will be safe and you can check out the windows 8 features as well.

    Regards...
