    I am using vista right now and this is my hard drive setup...

    Windows XP - C Drive
    Windows XP 2 - D Drive
    Windows Vista - E Drive
    Files - F Drive

    I want to backup my whole hard drive in Vista but when you are in Vista it changes its drive letter to C no matter what drive letter it is so in your program I get these drive letters...

    Windows XP - D Drive
    Windows XP 2 - F Drive
    Windows Vista - C Drive
    Files - E Drive

    So if I backup and restore wouldn't that make my whole PC not boot because the boot loader is on the c drive or it would it change my XP drive letters making them not boot. I am using the new True Image 10 for Vista.

    Since Vista uses an new boot process, I don't think you would have any trouble with XP after restoring an image made in Vista.

    The image could be made in Linux from the recovery CD if you wanted extra assurance that everything will still work.
