    I have 5744, and we all know we have only a few days left to upgrade. I'm just unsure if I go to install the RTM, that I'll lose all my data. If I'll have to do a clean install, what is the best backup tool to backup all my programs and files?



    Sorry for the newbie question,

    Jesse

    Burn importantfiles to a disk. Go ahead with the install. You should be able to just do an in place upgrade, but if it want to do a clean install it will simply move everything on your HD to a windows.old folder which you can access, move files over to your new instalation, then delete. Back up first though.
