I am late to the B&R issue and am trying out Paragon B&R 2011. I have a few questions for anticipated usage and would appreciate some clarification. System 1: Win 7 x64 HP running on an 80GB Intel X-25M SSD. All programs and OS on this drive (plus whatever other data that certain programs don't permit me to store elsewhere.) Additional SATA mechanical drives for data and duplication. External SATA mechanical HD for backup. I wish to test out how B&R works. I have a spare 150GB WD Velocirator (never used) that I'd like to use in place of the X-25M for testing purposes. Will the recovery format only 80GB of the WD VR 150GB drive to match the X-25M? If so, I suppose I will need to find a partitioning tool to merge the remainder of the drive into the 80GB partition in order to use the full drive. Also, in the backup process, I have a choice of what parts of my C: drive (X-25M) to backup: http://i.imgur.com/En7Gg.png Is there any reason to check any less than the entire C: drive? What purpose does the First HD track serve? Do I need to check that too? Along with the MBR?
