My XPS M1530 has a 10GB recovery partition.
It's very very valueable ! I had to re-install Windows Vista a couple of times and it's very fast and handy (no need to swap the various Dell cd's).
I really would like to take a backup of this partition so I can re-create it down the line if needed.
Does anyone have a similar need ?
I thought of Acronis TrueImage so I can create an image (low level, that includes absolutely everything on the partition , including hidden and system files).
But I have not used this pgm before and I am not sure I want to spend money on it right now.
Unfortunately, I have Vista Home premium.
I wish I had vista ultimate.
From experience, I've found that: “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!
