Re: Windows 8 installment

Dear Customer,


Welcome to HP Support Forum and we are glad to assist you.


It looks like you are having a question about the "Documents, Music Files, Photos" on your Notebook as you're planning

to upgrade the Operating System. We will surely assist you with this.


I would kindly request with you to backup all your personal files before installing a differnt Operating System altogether. Incase if you miss out on backing up the files, you will end losing your personal data on the Unit


Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again
