backup. Secondary channel E: CDRW and F: CD-ROM. I have decided this
is backwards since backup images are taking up about 8-10 GB space on
the backup drive and want to make the maindrive the 40 GB and the
backup the 80 GB drive.
I have a third drive that is 40 GB and want to copy the entire C: drive
to the third 40 GB drive and later on copy the D: backup drive to the
original 80 GB drive. My problem is Drive Image 2002 will not restore
an image or copy the 80 GB drive to a smaller 40 GB drive. How can I
get around this?
No matter what happens someone will find a way to take it too seriously.
Re: 80 GB --> 40 GB
I assume you are talking about some flavor of Windoze. My present
practice is to maintain 4 G partitions on both the primary and
secondary drives, and use XXCOPY /clone (see <www.xxcopy.com>) to
back C onto D. I understand there are some problems with Windows
XP, but I am using 98, and the problems may well be fixed by now.
This way you can always recover from a failure by simply switching
Partitioning the remaining space is a big variable, and depends on
your practices. I recommend the primary 4 G partition because this
keeps the disk wastage down with FAT32 file systems. You will also
find you have room to mount, and get used to, a real system in the
