I just got my copy of Windows 7 Pro and would like to begin the custom upgrade installation.
I currently have a D partition which houses various goodies and I'd like to know if this partition will be trashed by Windows 7 during the upgrade / install process.
Will I have the option of keeping this partition?
Thanks in advance.

I am using Acronis and Acronis will not restore a Windows 7 partition. It will restore a whole hard disk that has Windows 7 on it.
Similarly Paragon Disk Manager will trash the whole hard disk when you try to delete a partition on which Windows 7 is installed.
Sofar I am using Acronis and am backing up the whole hard disk up to an external hard disk. Have restored several times and this has proven to be reliable.

W7 does weird things...

You just need to make sure to select the correct partition to install Windows 7 into.
