    Hello,
    I went to a clients house today.
    their dell dimension is in a really bad state. it has a dell recovery partition.
    atm I am backing up C: to the second internal hard drive. (IFL)
    does anyone know if i restore the factory default ghost image using CTRL and F11 weither it will touch the second hard drive?
    i would assume it would just restore the image to C: and then reboot and thats it (also since not all everyone would have two hard drives). but i just want to make sure since i dont want to lose the image i created of C: using IFL which is stored on the second hard drive.

    To be sure, how about just pull the plug on the 2nd HD when you restore?
