Which is why, if you value the data on your computer at all, when making 
a major change like installing a new OS, you should  *always*   have a 
complete backup of your system.  No pushback, just fact.  With today's 
sub-$100 terabyte plug-in drives and tons of cheap or free backup 
software it just makes sense.
