Hi All, I am somewhat confused after reading the posts here regarding the best type of backup because of issues copying the MBR. I have a XP Pro SP2 with two internal hard drives in my computer. Disk O (master-40GB) with partitions C, D, & E (with partition C approximately 18GB and D & E approximately 10GB each) and Disk 1 (slave-80GB) partitions F, G, H, & I (each approximately 18.5GB). I will be making image back ups to an external 160GB external hard drive connected by a firewire card. Do I need to make an image back up of each disk, or can I make up image back ups of the partitions individually? I made an image back up of all of Disk 0 on partition G. On partition F I have image backups of partition I from another program. I'm planning on making an additional image of Disk 0 on the external hard drive. I would also like to make image backups of partiton H and I only (as F and G have image backups). Should Disk 1 fail would I be able to reformat Disk 1 into 4 partitions and restore partitions H and I or would there be a problem because of a lack of a MBR from Disk 1? Any suggestions would be appreciated?
