The SETUP utility overwrites only Word program files; the SETUP utility does not destroy document files in the program directory. It does not copy any style sheet or glossary files from the Word program disks, so any customized glossaries or style sheets will remain intact. However, if your printer driver has been modified, don’t reinstall for your printer during setup because it will copy over the modified printer driver file.

You should always back up important document files to a floppy disk even though the SETUP utility does not touch them; doing so will protect files from any other problems that may occur, such as a hard-disk failure.
