    Hi,

    I have a notebook, which has got windows XP Home, i have been using this for a few months now, and have loads of data in it.

    Now, I want to upgrade my OS to Windows XP Professional. Can I do this upgrade without loosing the data and installed programs on my notebook, or if I go for the upgrade all will be lost ?

    Thanks in Advance -

    You should be OK with an upgrade, just make sure your computer is clean before doing it. Dump the trash, do a disk cleanup, defrag the HD etc.
