    Snow Leopard Upgrade
    I have a copy of the WWDC 09 Snow Leopard, i am running mac OSX 10.5.7 on a Black Macbook (mid 2008 purchase), i want to upgrade to snow leopard but im worried that it will delete all my files
    creating a backup and restoring from that is not an option
    thanks in advance

    I wouldn't recommend installing it then. Operating systems in beta form are still in development. Installing one on a production system, with valuable data, without a backup, is like strolling through a mine field.

    It's only a few more months until the full release is out - and even then I would recommend doing a backup before installing.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I would recommend you to buy a external hard-drive as they can be had for cheap these days
    15" MacBook Pro Aluminum, 2.53G / iPhone 3G 16G Black/TimeCapsule 1TB back up and media server/Mac Mini 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo

    Time Machine should be sufficient. I had to reinstall Leopard on a totally new hard drive and all my files and settings were restored from my last backup.
