    If this is a concern for you, IMO you should not install WIN10 TP at all.

    It's not finished, may behave strange and cause dataloss or brick your system to the point you need to reimage your system. In any case do not go there unless you have a full backup/image of your current system.

    You could use the built in backup tool to image your Windows 7 partition, then run the upgrade from 7 to 10.
    If it is an upgrade it should leave your files intact, though you may need to reinstall some applications.

    But heed the warning of the post above!

    data loss is not an issue for me and I already have it installed it on my windows 8 machine.... My only concern is the roll back feature which happens to be in windows 8 upgrade to windows 10 TP

    I didn't try it, but I saw a video on YT too, where no data loss happened, but some settings could be gone after rollback and some Shortcuts where corrupted. If you understand german, here's the vid:

    If not, you see at least, how it works (it's only a test, not an actual system and so he doesn't have real data or such things)

    The partition that Windows is on, typically C:\.
    I'd you upgrade, it shouldn't be deleted, only Windows gets moved to a 'Windows. Old' folder and Windows 10 gets installed to the drive.
    (Can someone confirm this?)

    Thinking about the way you are asking these questions, though, maybe it isn't a good idea for you to try it yet. Perhaps wait for a consumer preview of it..?

    Thank you buddy ..... Perhaps hearing all of you I am starting to feel that I should wait for consumer preview....
    Although my windows 8 machine hasn't had any problem as of yet ..

    Having said all that, I am using Windows 10 as my main OS and I haven't really had any problems so far (I do stay on the slow update ring, though!).

    Not that I'm a heavy gamer, but what about gaming and Steam? Anyone know if it works well?
