    Hi all,
    Ive just made my first full back up image using TI 7 (611). I now want to store my mp3s on the hdd, which i already have backed up on several cds. What id like to know is that when i make an incremental back up can i chose not to backup the mp3s or does it not give any options, ie backs up all changes. Thanks

    You can't backup partition partially. To achieve what you want, temporarily move or delete the mp3s to some other locations and then backup the drive/partition. The best practice would be to create separate partition for mp3s, or even a separate disk if you've got any. What I'm trying to say is, its better to seperate data and OS on different disks/partitions. This way, you don't need to back up your datas like mp3s so backup becomes quicker, smaller and more manageable.
