i've never overwritten an image, but i expected it would. usually u ssimply *delete* the one u don't want [for example: C_23oct.gho] and create a new one [C_24oct.gho].

Hi again,
Please look over my plan below  . . .

now I have installed my work apps and want to make another image and i will burn these spans this time so I even have yet another back up source.

so now I have master C: with my win2k,and basic apps, dsl drivers so on. . .
and
slave D: this has 3 partitions 32, 32, 12 GB I have
set as D,F,G 
- I have D as my drive for what ever and (I put a game on it to help ease my stress )
- F has my IMAGES
(right now just has 1 image of C: right after I installed OS and DSL)
- G has some data I need to keep like source files and PSD files for work from my old drive.

I plan to organize this G drive data and burn a backup

then I am going to make an image of the C: as it is now and put it in F drive with other small image.

then burn copies of the spans(it's 3.6gig now)
I will buy a new very small drive to move the first image (750mb) to I wish I would have made it span so I could burn it. But I didnt know I was wanting to do what I am telling.
then I will have CD back up of my old DATA and my C: image right after OS install and an image of it after apps install.
then I will write over D: F,G with a disk to disk clone of C:
and use it for my biweekly back ups
is this OK or do you see a pitfall?

ur doing great.

good idea to create new images as you proceed.

sometimes u find that something you install (drives, programs, etc) screws up your system or generates stabilitry problems. but sometimes u don't realize this until u use the system for a few days.

i like to create a few images as i install new shit. this way i can go back in incremental steps if i discover that something is not right with my system. don't have to go all the way back to square one.

if you use your system for a week or two with no problems, it's usually safe to delete old images.

load games to d, not c.

So I am not setting my self up for a fall if I

move the 2 images to CD and then reformate the D: so I can make a disk to disk CLONE that stays on D: then I will only have a CD with images and a Clone drive of the OS and all Apps. that I re-clone biweekly this is ok you say ? plz re-affirm ???

If I make a Clone disk to disk I must make sure not to let windos C: see it right? I thought I remembered that . .

TY

don't clone:

you want to create an *image*:

make sure your images are smaller than 650 MB b4 burning.

disk is for the whole physical hard drive.

partition is just for the partition (duh)

if you only have 1 partition on the hard drive, it shouldn't matter since partition = disk.
