Long story short, there isn't an upgrade path from 32bit to 64bit, or
the reverse. In other words, a complete system backup won't help you.
As far as data goes, you can copy it manually to a safe place (removable
drive, secondary drive, DVD, etc) and then do a clean install of 64bit,
then go back and install your apps and restore your data.
I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.
