This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

It will retain your old files and software. The first time I upgraded to 12.04 my system crashed after a month due to some bad post-upgrade software updates, but it was the first time in my three years of using Ubuntu that it had happened. I re-installed 12.04 and now it's running smoothly.
