With MS Media Creation Tool, you can do Upgrade, which keeps your files. Or you can make Setup Media. The setup media is usually used to do clean installs = wiping your drives. The better way is to backup your files, then do a clean install. You need to backup your files regularly anyways; there are viruses, malfunctions, ransomware etc.

Win 10 Recovery also has a tool to keep files.
