Windows 8.1 preview to 8.1 final?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has been stated already, but will users have to re-install Windows 8 in order to get 8.1 when it comes out on the store if they are running 8.1 preview now? I think I read that but I wanted to confirm. I'm a long time Technet member and it looks like I won't see it until October either. I'm wonder if I need to do a clean install of Windows 8 a few days before release in order to get it?

This has been talked about time and time again. You can "upgrade" 8.1 preview to 8.1 RTM, but you will need to reinstall all your programs. Your personal files will remain intact.
