    Default Will upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Pro wipe out data?

    Having a lot of difficulty with 7-Home Premium. One of the annoyances is that it does not recognize Flash Drives over 32Meg...and other problems. Can I upgrade of 7-Professional (which my wife has and works perfectly) without losing my data, personal files, etc. or does the upgrade wipe out everything?

    No, it will preserve your data. Nevertheless it would be a good idea to backup your data to an external hard drive. While upgrading, select the Keep my personal files and data option.
