I want to use Ghost to backup HDD to a second drive. I don't necessarily want BIOS to recognize second HDD in case I get another bad Trojan like the ADMINCASH I got earlier. So, my understanding is, I use Ghost to back up main HDD periodicallyu and it is invisible the rest of the time. I think I read in the Ghost manual (yes, I read the manual FIRST ) and it appears you can use some sort of command to make it visible and invisible, at least to intruders??
My goal is to back up the OS and system, now that I have the base programs restored - before I add a lot of data. Have one starting point that I can recover to in case of above named nasty trojan. Then, use Ghost to occasionally back up system with data files, overwriting that file each time. I will have two backed up files - one with base OS and Programs. Second, a rolling, update of HDD as it is on the date of the periodic update.
Any clearer? Muddier than before?
Thanks for any advice and or cautions

I follow a somewhat similar backup procedure, using Ghost images - yes, one early base image followed by roughly once a month imaging. But, I also use Replicator to make automatic daily backups of data files, docs, dbx and pst files. Makes for a pretty comfortable night's sleep knowing all bases are covered in the event of a catastrophy.
