    If you are worried then physically disconnect your media player from your PC when you do the upgrade.

    Backup before you upgrade.

    Always back up before upgrading. I use Clonezilla to back up on a NAS. You can also use it to backup to say a Toshiba Cavio Pocket drive.

    The image is the same size as the partitions on the drive, so make sure you have enough storage.

    You can of course do a trial of Amazon's Unlimited Cloud and store all of your files over there for the upgrade.

    It's always a good idea to have backups of any files that are important and you don't want to lose.

    Music should be stored in the music folder, unless a third party software has created a music folder in its directory in one of the Program's folder.

    Your personal files will be preserved, but always remember to back up.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
