Is there a way for me to upgrade my current OS windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit without losing all my files?
BTW..I don't have any external storage capable enough to back-up all my existing files..

I'm planning to upgrade to an 8gb RAM (my current RAM is 4gb), and I know that a 32-bit OS can't utilize all that memory..

I've already checked that my PC is capable of running a 64-bit OS..

Yeah when you install win 7 64 bit it will ask you if you want to upgrade, or fresh install u upgrade and select keep old windows files which it should ask

no. you need to reinstall the 64 bits version of windows. only way to keep your stuff is to copy it to another partition than the one you install windows and then back
