I am very new to this whole area having just obtained True Image (v6) with my Freecom FDH3 (USB2 FAT32) drive. My basic question concerns the strategy viz partitions on my main (XP based) PC. The C Drive (NFTS) currently has just the one partition. To make backups easier/quicker, am I better off partitioning the :C into (say) two - with the operating system/programs in one partition and my data in another. I figure that I could then image the data partition on (say) a weekly basis and the operating system on (say) a monthly basis. A supplemental - if partitioning is a good idea, what software should I use ?
