"The Beta will stop working on August 1, 2009"

EDIT:

After reviewing the windows 7 user Q&A page (BTW don't go there, It's like wading through a pool of sewage) It seems that windows seven will abruptly stop working on that date, and you will not be able to recover your data without using another operating system or a live CD of some sort.

That sounds scary!By data you mean the software and other things I have got in the windows folders right?I don't wanna lose my music collection.

Simply back-up your data before that point and re-install the OS that you were using before. If you do not then you can only recover your data by using a LiveCD since you will be unable to boot the OS. At least that is what it seems like from what they keep saying in the Q&A.

To continue using your PC, please be prepared to reinstall a prior version of Windows or a subsequent release of Windows 7 before the expiration date. See Installing the Windows 7 Beta.

Your feedback and our continued progress will determine when the final version of Windows 7 becomes available.

Here is the link, It seems really clean to me.
