    Default Software installation questions

    Hi to all.

    I'd like to know that in general when I reinstall softwares other than the Windows XP and MS Office will I loose the saved files say that I reinstall them using the same folders as before?

    Not likely. Usually when you reinstall a software using the same location, it will not erase existing files. It's only when you do an uninstall, some software will prompt to remove all including saved files. The rest will just leave the saved files as they are.

    No u dun have to...Howvever my usual practice is backup the files first...copy and rename it to another drive or folder. Anyway u can always delete them once u have a successful reinstallation.
