Depends. What filesystems do you use (FAT or NTFS?) and what kind of 
files are these (.wav, .doc, ...)?

You might want to try Debian Live first. It runs completely standalone 
from a CD and allows you to test Debian without touching your existing 
setup. (Note: the performance will not be quite the same as CD drives 
are slower than hard disks).

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
