how to setup a new hd for True Image. How best to partition it.
Posted on 2004-05-01
Recently lost a hard drive to a mechanical failure, so now i am motivated to mirror the drive. Currently i have 2 new 120g wd drives, internal. the second one has not been setup yet, and i am wondering how best i should partition it. i do some family movie editing, so the second drive is good for the storage of those files i believe.
My guess, is i calculate how much space i think i'd need for the mirror, setup that partition for that, and leave, or create the remainder for the video folders.
I picked True Image as the most appropriate app for this. Just want to get a blessing on partitioning the second drive, and that all this will provide me what i am hoping for. and if there are any step by step procedures i should keep in mind, so i dont learn this the hard way.
Will True Image be self explanatory in the wizard from this point on. Thanks in advance.
Windows XP, True Image 6, about 20 gig of current storage or files.
