What ever that data is put it on a external device large enough. A far as a guarantee of a clean upgrade some do some don't. Personally I have everything on a external HD and just do fresh installs, this is faster and more efficient for me. I also do installs at a whim of various distros so this works for my situation

You should always have a backed up OS anyway so you might start there before upgrading. At least what you can't afford to loose backed up.
