I will let you know for sure soon as I am doing my upgrade today, but I believe it would be prudent to back up to be on the safe side. Drivers and the like will be part of windows 10

Completed my upgrade yesterday and went nice and smoothly

It saved my personal data quite happily

Use this link to create a USB ISO for installation

If you have windows 10 on USB that will work as it provides its own keyboard drivers etc..
