Lubuntu


I have loaded the Lubuntu 12.04 software that came with the last issue of Ubuntu User. However, I would like to revert to my orginal Ubuntu 12.04. Can this be done without lossing all the programs, data, pictures and music on my laptop? Do I have to do a total backup to Ubuntu One and then reformat the hard drive?
