That would be possible only if Linux and Windows shared the C: unit
to store their files.
If not, your setup.exe would have to repartition the hard disk *while*
Windows is still using it. Such thing would be extremely dangerous.
It's not just a matter of copying files.
BTW: Linux has a special filesystem called "umsdos" which would allow
you to store Windows and Linux files on the same "C:" partition, but
this is not the optimal way to run Linux, so Debian does not support
