Hello, I've been lurking until recently joining the Forum. It's the best I lurked at so far. Thanks for being here and with your help maybe I avert another disaster. Here's what I got after reading the forum: FDISR, TI, Geniesoft Backup, 2 SeagateHDD's 160gb and 400gb.At the moment my 160 is the boot drive divided into three partitions with the C: being only 15g (I know but the expert I let help did it) and the other two equal. The 400 gb is set for additional storage, no boot. From reading posts here, particular thanks to Erik and Peter though many others have added to my knowledge, I'm thinking the 160 should stay my boot drive ( Why wouldn't I want the 400 bootable?) in one 160gb partition for FDISR snapshots and put the archives on the 400gb drive. Erik mentions leaving only system files on C: and certain apps or programs. Are there some apps or prorams that need to stay on C:? Lastly, how do I repartition C: to 160 without losing my data? Sorry for the length of my first post but thanks again.
