Within the next two days I will be upgrading my RAM from 2GB to 6GB, and thus upgrading from 32-bit to 64-bit. The issue I have is with the clean install that will have to take place.
When I clean install from 32-bit to 64-bit, I understand that my programs (iTunes, video games)and applications (java, adobe) will be removed. However, does this also mean that my files (i.e. pictures, video, music, downloads) will not be stored in a "Windows.old" file, or will the files be retained and retrieve-able after the clean install?
