procedures for using disk image process
Posted on 2006-05-21
When I do a disk image to an external drive does the imaging process remove partititions and erase everything on the target drive? Is this standard procedure with programs like acronis true image and norton ghost. The reason that I ask is that my external drive is 160 GB and the image of my C drive will only require 45 GB. It seems like such a huge waste of space on the target drive that will store the image. If this is the case can you suggest another approach to this process. Any feedback will be appreciated.
