I want to remove Windows 8 and return to Windows 7 or even XP. What is the best way to remove files that I want before formatting? This is not a dual boot system. I understand that programs like MS Office, Quicken and others will have to be re-installed. This I am prepared to do I just want a sure and faster way to save pictures, music and data files.

Thank you for the advise, copy it is. Is there anything else or anywhere else I might look for data that I should keep? Damn I wish I would have installed using dual boot.
