Hi Guys

I have a legal copy of Microsoft Office 2007 and wonder if someone can advise me. It might seem a stupid question but no harm in asking.

I am in the process of installing WIN 7 and wonder if it is possible for me to backup my current data to an external HDD and restore when the installation of Win 7 is complete.
I know I could easily install the program once again but what happens to the data I have saved already e.g. excel files / word files etc etc.

Perhaps someone out there can offer some advice how to go about performing an operation of saving these files to disc with the intention of reinstalling.

Tks

Documents and Data files (pictures, movies, songs, etc...) are completely separate from the applications that you use to read these files...

you SHOULD backup all of the data that you want to keep (documents, pictures, movies, songs, etc...) before upgrading to make sure that they're safe (you should back these things up regularly anyway)..

you can burn them to CD/DVD, transfer them to USB memory keys (flash drives), or another hard drive (if you've got 2 installed in the computer already, or if you've got an external hard drive)
