I have a laptop with Windows 7. It's not partitioned that's why I'm worrying about my files if I reformat my hard drive and do a clean install. Getting an external HDD is a definite solution, so let's get past that. So I was wondering, if I make a second installation of Windows without deleting the old one or reformatting my hard drive, would it be possible to transfer files between those two installation of Windows? I mean like, can I access the Documents, Music, Pictures, etc folder of the first installation from the second installation of Windows? I just want to make a somewhat clean installation without getting rid of my important, large chunk of files. Thanks in advance.
