Dell W7 Upgrade

Hello All,

Can't seem to get a definitive answer to this so here goes. I have a Dell laptop with Vista preinstalled and recovery disks. It has two original partitions OS(C:) and RECOVERY(D:), I have added a third for all my data, Data(F:).

I have received the Dell Windows 7 upgrade. It comes with two disks, Windows 7 upgrade and Upgrade Assistant.

My question is this, after the upgrade to Windows 7 what becomes of RECOVERY (D:), is it modified? Will the recovery recover the laptop to Vista or Windows 7?...............what will actually happen?

Thanks in advance.
