I would like to know the cleanest way to back up my Windows C drive. This has all my progs in it. My idea is to image that drive to an external drive I have. In order to get a clean image, how do I do that. I presume I would need the recovery cd to boot up if ever I had problems with Windows. Can I image my partitioned laptop in the same way? I would then be imaging my c and e drive to an external drive?
