    No they will not be deleted but a smart person makes images of all partitions on that disk before manipulating a partition.

    I once lost all partitions on a disk using Partition Wizard. Was my fault because I made a mistake. But such things happen.

    Yes a backup image of all partitions. Then you can backpaddle when things go south.

    This is not a must and you can take your chances. Normally nothing happens but I'd rather be careful than sorry.

    Here is a good imaging program. You should use it at least once a month anyhow.
