I have one partition with Ubuntu 9.10, and another with Windows Vista.
I am trying to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.04 since 9.10 is no longer supported. I understand I need to do a fresh install with a disc (rather than just updating from synaptic, since it's such a big jump).
When I do this, will my data on the Windows partition be affected?
I don't have much space to back things up, so I thought I'd just move any unbacked-up data from the Ubuntu partition onto the Windows partition. Then, I'll wipe the Ubuntu partition and install 12.04 on it.
Is this a bad idea?
