    It's always a good idea to make a backup of your drive before doing anything as major as upgrading the OS. However, installing Lion will not delete your files.

    I strongly recommend backing up via Time Machine and I strongly recommend doing a clean install (this WILL erase your hard drive) of Lion... AFTER you have successfully backed up your machine.
