Colorado Tape ?

I have a Colorado Tape and I want to back up my files. I have Windows 98 and a 1.2 gig hdd. My hdd is currently compressed with Drivespace3. What I would like to do is back up my entire drive so I can do a reformat of my hardrive and install Windows 98 and use FAT32 to partition the disk. My question is should I uncompress my drive then store it to tape or can I store it compressed so I can load it later on a FAT 32 formatted HDD? Is this possible?
 Thanks, Rip

Just back it up as-is.The files will un-compressed before being written to the tape,so they'll look the same to the tape drive as if they were coming from an un-compressed drive.Just back up the files,not the compressed drive.

However,unless you want to change the number or size of your partition(s),this conversion can be carried out without backing up to tape.Just un-compress the drive,then run the FAT32 conversion utility (Sytem Tools - Disk Cleanup - More Options).
