XP Home to XP Pro

  recap 12:58 29 Nov 06

I have XP home and XP pro machines. I want to upgrade the XP home to XP pro to enable me to connect it to a Domain.

In doing this will I still be able to have access to all the data that is on the XP home machine?

As far as I can remember you should boot into XP home , the put the XP Pro disk in and it will ask if you wish to upgrade ,you may have to download all your Windows updates again though .....and you must back up everything important first , just in case .

Thanks Ashrich, but will I still be able to gain access to the data thats on the workgroup part of the system when I configure it to a domain?

That bit I am not sure on , maybe somebody else might know , I have only done the odd upgrade to non critical systems .
