    No, upgrading your Operating System does not require you to erase the hard drive. All your files, applications, and settings will be transferred over. Be sure to backup your computer using a external hard drive + Time Machine first, to be safe. Also, verify all of your 3rd party programs that you've downloaded/installed and make sure they are compatible in 10.7 or have updates to make them compatible.
