    Default [SOLVED] Will I lose my data if I uninstall and reinstall?

    I recently upgraded from Vista SP1 to Windows 7 and Zimbra has stopped working. I have tried using "compatibility mode" to no success, so I am planning to uninstall/reinstall.

    If I do this, will I lose all of my calendar and contact data? I have "backed up" my data to DVD (I think) using the Export function, however I can't read the DVD given Zimbra's current unresponsiveness. Please confirm whether or not it's safe to uninstall, and if not, how what should I do? Thanks much.

    you won't lose your data, as long as you DO NOT choose the option of deleting local data during uninstallation.

    Default Solved!

    Thank you for your prompt response! Happy to report that Zimbra is back up-and-running with data in-tact on Windows 7 (Life is good)!
