    Hello sreedhar,

    You could use the OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to update to Windows 8.1 Pro from the Store and not lose anything.
    To be safe, I would always recommend that you back up anything that you do not want to lose. If you were to say lose power while doing the update/upgrade to 8.1, you could lose everything.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
