With the intention of backing up my computer,
The new HDD is formatted in NTFS, with one large
partition. So I would like to now find if possible a freeware
application which would allow me to not only back up all
my important files, and Photo’s Etc but also to do a full
image and copy all that’s on my computer including
the operating system. The other thing I am not too sure on
is how( or if I have to ) to partition my new external HDD, so I could
may be have one partition for the O/S and a second
partition for my individual back up photo / Document folders.
As you can no doubt tell this is my first time down the backing
Up road , so any advice and comments on the above are most welcome
I am using Windows XP , my internal HDD ( 250GB ) has 3 partitions
C. Capacity 78.1GB
This partition contains the O/S and programme Files Etc
D. . Capacity 75.5GB
This Partition contains un needed folders
E. Capacity 78.00GB
This Partition Contains The Folders…..
Microsoft Visual Machine
VB.6.0 SP5 Runtime
Windows Media Encoder 9
Windows Media Player 10
I am not too sure why these folders are on this partition..?
also is it necessary to change my C partition from FAT32 to NTFS ..?
