Windows is installed on my C drive and I have some other data/programs installed on another drive. If I upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit, I know a clean install on C is necessary, but what about the data/programs on the other drive? Can they be left alone?

then install the 64 bit os in another drive say (D:)  in tat case you can have a dual boot option and the programs will not be deleted

I have one HD that is totally clean (in addition to C and the other drive with data/programs on it).

If I understand you correctly, I could install the 64 bit version of Win 7 on the clean drive, then see if I needed to make any changes to the existing programs on C and the other drive in order to make them run.

Is that right? Please excuse my ignorance!
