What happens to files stored on system partition when I'm upgrading windows 7 to 10? are old files replaced by new win 10 files? or windows just add new files?

The recovery image stays the same (Win 7). There is a copy of the prior install saved as windows.old. The recovery image/partition is created by the PC manufacturer and is not a supported feature of Windows.

If you install Windows from a retail DVD it's possible to delete the recovery partition if you select the wrong option.
