Hello there ^^ I've got a question about formatting and taking back up on the same hard disk. I'm using windows xp professional, and I'm going to switch to windows 7. I've got one hard drive, that's split up into two partitions, one with windows xp installed, as well as all other important programs, and the other working as a slave drive with all my games, music, photos, etc. I was wondering whether it's possible to format, and afterwards install windows 7, on the master drive, while leaving the slave drive as is, still containing all my backup files. that way I could simply transfer any backup files from the slave drive, back to the master drive that would now have windows 7 installed. is this possible? and if so, how do I do it? do I need a guide, or is it an easy part of the windows 7 installation process?
