I just read through the TI 11.0 manual. Maybe it confused me more, and I just just plow ahead. But, stumbled on this forum and everyone seems so knowledgeable I figure I'd take a stab at a post before I do. I have a Lenovo desktop with a 500GB drive. Lenovo ships with a 30GB C drive that has the (Vista Home Premium) OS on it, a D drive with around 450GB on it, and a hidden service partition with 20GB on it. The intent is to allow one button restore of C from the hidden service partition. But, no matter how hard I try, C keeps getting filled up. I really don't need/want the service partition or the built in back up feature, since I have T1 that I use to back up to an external 500GB USB drive. So - I have a new internal 500 GB hard disk. I want to make it into two partitions - a 100GB C drive and a 400GB D drive. I don't think I want to clone my existing drive to the new one, because I don't want to create the old service partition. BUT.... 1) Can I clone just just the old C & D partitions? or... 2) If I do that, can I use the manual mode to change the size of the partitions on the destination drive? or.... 3) Should I just partition the new drive with the partition sizes I want and restore the C & D partitions to it? 4) Is it better to do it while Vista is running, or should I boot from the Rescue Media? lastly... 5) When I restore the old C partition to the C partition on the new drive, with the new drive be bootable under Vista, or do I need to do anything else?
