Losing data on a YLOD PS3?

I'm just wondering if you go through the process to fix the YLOD on an old PS3, do you also lose the data that was on that PS3?

Thinking of picking up the ifixit kit to resurrect it, but I wanna make sure that the data is still intact, otherwise, I really don't need to fix it since I have another PS3 anyways.

I'm mainly referring to save files, account infos, and trophy info that wasn't updated yet, as I know games can be redownloaded from PSN.

Ragnarok, since you are unplugging the storage device, a YLOD repair should not affect the data.
