    I have two internal hard drives (Disc 1 and Disc 2) on my Inspiron 8100 notebook, and it is connected to an external hard drive (200GB)(Disc 3). I want to create an image of Disc 1, on the external drive, Disc 3. I selected Disc 1, clicked next, but got this message: "The image archive file will be created on the same partition that you are going to backup! You should copy this archive to another partition or removeable media". How can I make an image of Disc 1, which is my primary hard drive, on the external drive, Disc 3?

    i dont have the gui in front of me but make sure to read carefully. (on the rescue disk at least) first itll ask u where to place the backup then it will ask which harddrive/partition to backup.
