    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.
