Can I keep Partitions if I install windows 8 or windows 7pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

     I want to install windows 8 or windows 7 ultimate or pro on my computer. I have windows 7 home at the moment the reason being  I have 32gb ram but only 16 is being used :( I have made a partition with  a lot of data in it and I just want to know if going to windows 8 or installing windows pro or ultimate I can still keep that partition if I leave it alone in the installation stage?

    Cheers

    First  suspect you do not have 32Gigs of ram.  Can you give us your system specs?

    Second if you have win 7 home you can install either win 7 pro or win 8 over the top by doing an upgrade and you should be able to keep your current partitions and data.  Like with all things f the data is important I would back it up
