    when upgrading, you will have an option to either do an upgrade (where you can keep all your data, programs and settings) or you have the option to do a custom (advanced) install. this is for a clean install (you will lose data and programs)

    here is the window where you choose what type of install you do: http://www.elmajdal.net/win7/In-Place_Upgrade_From_Windows_7_Beta_To_Windows_7_RC/7-choose-upgrade.png

    Also, if you have multiple drives/hardisks (a C drive, a D drive etc) the only disk affected is the drive you install the OS to. For example, if you install the OS to the C hard drive, then the D and E hard drives will not be affected. Here is a picture where you pick which drive to do the upgrade on: http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/17/2011/09/windows8partition.jpg
