Windows 10 Upgrade: will we lose all saved files on your computer? [CLOSED]

+1 vote

Has anyone else got the notice for Windows 10 Upgrade for free from Windows 7 and 8.1. If so have you upgraded and if you did how do you like it.

Also did you lose all saved files on your computer, did you have to put them on another drive?

closed with the note: No more explanation is needed.

No you will not loose data in case of upgrade to Windows 10. Windows provide the complete FAQ to deal with Windows-10 related issue.

Since it has not yet been released to the public you won't get any answers about how it goes except for the beta testers. General release was scheduled for next week (7/29) but has been postponed for a few days, anyway, and would already be downloaded to your computer before they would advise you that you can upgrade now. Apparently that process may spread out over days or weeks, but once you have signed up for it, the actual installation is something you control, and it can be done for up to a year after they tell you you can do it. Not all computers can be upgraded, but by selecting yes to their invitation they will check your system for compatibility and if it passes, give you a reservation. Operating systems other than Win7, and Win8.1 are not eligible, and they must be up-to-date at that.

I installed Fedora 19 on my laptop, and it worked beautifully with the already installed Windows 8. When I upgraded the Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Now it boots straight to Windows 8.1 and grub does not appear.

I disabled secure boot in the firmware.

I do not even know which version of grub was booting the UEFI system before; it just worked.

Can anyone suggest:

  1. What grub would the Fedora 19 installer have provided to boot it and Windows 8? (grub2, grub-efi,...)
  2. Can anyone point to any documentation on how to fix this?

When going to the web site all see is Index of / and the page like you would see when doing a directory list, but it is blank (no files listed - just the apache version, etc.). I have looked in the logs and have checked the apache conf files and it looks the php module is set to load, but the index.php is not loading.

Any suggestions?
