    I have like 417 GB free of 899 GB. Its really important and I hope it doesnt get lost.
    When I upgrade to windows 10 on July 29 will all of this be transferred to it? Or I have to backup or something. How does this work??

    Under normal circumstances all data should be fine. It's like any other upgrade. Besides a traditional backup you could put all your important stuff on OneDrive.

    If you do an upgrade, your data should be safe. Should be. If you do a clean install, you'll lose everything and have to start from scratch including drivers, etc. I strongly urge anybody to back it all up to an external drive before doing any upgrades or installs. They're very cheap nowadays compared to the priceless photos, music or documents you may have stored.

    Can't stress backups enough.

    Always partition your dirve. Keep all your data off the C drive. Then if you have to do clean installs you'll have no worries about losing data. Having said that, make use of OneDrive. You should use a serivces like LiveDrive or Carbonite to name just two. LiveDrive automataclly backs up all your data and keeps everything safe.

    Just be careful while installing Windows 10. Upgrade means ask data remains as it is. Clean install clears everything. Formatting the drive removes everything as well. Just select "upgrade" and you are good to go.

    Put all your files into onedrive and subscribe to office 365 to get 1 TB of memory. Transfer everything to one drive and have no worries.

    This is the easiest and most painless way. You're even given the option to remove the TP and go back to where you were before. Can't go wrong with that.
