    Hi,

    Im trying to find a simple way of imaging partitions so I can save my
    windows partition and restore my system to a perfect replication of
    right after a clean install. When I tried with ghost it wouldn't let
    me do a single partition, the drive had 5 parititons and it forced me
    to erase everything from the drive and only make one partition from
    the image I had made.

    Also, is there an easy way to make backups of directories that are
    larger than a DVD.

    thank you
