Will the install of Snow Leopard leave my Paralles alone?

  • Yes. Your Parallels virtual machine resides in a folder called "Parallels" in your documents folder.
    Installing Snow Leopard will upgrade your computer, and not delete anything in your documents folder, like pictures, documents, and in this case your Parallels machine.
    I would however make sure that the version of parallels you're running is compatible with Snow Leopard. You can go to parallels website to find that information.
    I would also recommend backing up your documents folder to an external hard drive before performing the install, because once in a blue moon, something will go wrong, and you could lose important files and folders.
