    Just bought SP and intend to use the recovery CD to back up the VISTA C partition and immediately test with a restore. I don't want to screw it up.

    Are there any special considerations to keep in mind in using SP to make back-ups of partitions with FD-ISR snapshots? For instance, is it advisable to back up the whole partition including free space; is defragmentation recommended beforehand, etc.? Is it useful to exclude any folders / files? And any other suggestions?

    As sukarof said-no special considerations,no problems,just do a normal default backup using the same criteria as any other backup:thumb:

    I can also echo, no problems with SP and FDISR. No you don't need to back up freespace.

    I also use the default settings to backup or restore.

    I only created an extra Recovery CD in case the original fails due to
    - wear and tear
    - a cup of hot coffee with sugar and milk over it
    - stepping on it
    - a life Dennis, the menace.
    - etc.

    In fact I have an extra copy and .iso-file of every CD I use to install my computer from scratch. It's hard to get these CD's back when you lose them.
