Win 7 installation

I have a computer with XP Pro on it I am going to change to 7, use a blank 250G HDD and do a clean install, keep the existing 205G HDD with XP on it until I think everything is OK, then make a decision what to do with it, but my question, the computer also has a 500G HDD for programs and a 1.5TB HDD that I use for archiving, will my archives be easily accessable, I am expecting to reinstall the programs so thats a moot point,

    If you can access it form XP, you can access it from 7.

    Agreed, that way Win 7 won't write to the XP/Other MBR.
