This question already has an answer here:
Is it possible to upgrade Ubuntu from 11.10 32-bit to 12.10 64-bit (or the latest version out there) without losing any of my data (files, pictures, etc)?
Is it possible to upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit at all even?
I found this: Upgrade from 12.04 to 12.10 without losing files? but it doesn't state if it's possible to upgrade from 32 to 64. Any help would be nice. Thanks!
