I just got my Windows 7 Home Premium upgrade (from Vista) in the mail. It says to back up my files before installing it. Does anyone know if I'm going to lose my files or is this just a precaution in case something does happen?

Depends on what you are doing. If you are upgrading from Vista, its just a precaution. If you are doing a clean install, then you are going to lose everything.

In any case though, back up anything important because you never know if something will go wrong, and its always nice to have things backup in case something happens later with your hard drive.

I also read about Window's 7, and if you want to upgrade from XP, you have to buy additional software. Apparently you have to buy a different folder with stuff that will support Window's 7. Just a precaution.

No you shouldn't, if you do an upgrade not a custom install
I'm back, and this time for good.

If you're upgrading, it was a precaution, if you're formatting then it's a necessity.
