    When Windows 8 comes out will I be able to upgrade from Windows 7 to 8 or do I need to do a clean install? My computer is 32 bit and I don't want to do a clean install and lose all of my stuff.

    I have also upgraded from Vista already, would that be a problem?

    I can't imagine it being a problem to upgrade from Windows 7 > 8 - as long as the bit versions/editions work out ok :). Having already upgraded from Vista won't effect this, however I would recommend performing a clean install if possible - especially if you've not done so since Vista. You'll have a speedy fresh OS if you do so!

    Backing up data is quite straightforward normally and we can help advise on how to do it best.
