    Or would just backing-up and overwriting be ok? I attached my current storage space...

    Before you go installing Yosemite, you need to know that you can't simply erase the partition as usual, because the installer sets up the partition as a Core Logical Group. It isn't hard to covert to journaled. It involves using 2 terminal commands that are very quick to finish. The following is the post you should read.
