Hello all, I am a situation where I have to choose the lesser of multiple evils, unless you can help me get sorted out. When installing Vista Home Premium back in time, I did so on an unpartitioned 500 GB drive. Only too late I realized that exploiting the remaining 400+ GB for other purposes than system files would explode the image backup of that drive. I have three options: 1-have enormous backups 2-leave the 400 GB free 3-exclude "users" and other data elements - my present choice, but disencouraged by Acronis 4-reinstall OS and programs on a fresh partition I have tried to make a Computer image and restore it to a partition of appropriate size in version 11 without luck. I am now on 2009. Have I missed something?
