View Full Version : [ubuntu] Will upgrading via liveusb erase filesystem home files?

November 4th, 2011, 08:25 PM
While upgrading from 11.04 to 11.10, my netbook crashed and i wasn't able to boot back in. I was finally able to load back in with a liveusb to complete installation, but I'm curious - if I install, will I lose my filesystem home files from 11.04? i can see and access them now via gksudo, does that mean im good to finish 11.10 install without losing them? Thanks-

If you have separate home partition upgrade should be safe for your files on home partition.But if you can make back up just in case.
