  1. Back up your data before you start. There is no downgrade option, you have to install Win 7 fresh.

    Better ways?
  5. since you are will be using a different version of windows, if you use a software to backup in windows 8, it might not restore in windows 7.
  6. No - is copying to a USB such a problem?
  7. or upload to cloud like google drive
