I have 5 different Sata II and III Hard Disk Drives: 2 inside the PC Desktop tower and 3 more inside an external enclosure. Some of them have partitions (one has 4 already) and another has 2 partitions. The other 3 are not partitioned. So I have 'logical, dynamic, basic and legacy' HDD types accordiing to the Disk management and Device Manager (Storage) information from Windows 7 Home. Also 3rd party disk management software tells me the same. Which are the ones that will support a backup capsule creation, full backups and also differential backups in Paragon Backup and Recovery 2011 (Advanced Free). Conversely which are the types of HDD that would not be useable with paragon for Backups? I have read a number of posts about instructions how to backup by various forum contributors. I would want to have backups containing both the OS with all its settings plus the data; for those purposes do i need to create an 'image' of the HDD or 'clone' it. Is 'image' different from 'clone'? Is 'mirror' the same as 'image'? I have also read posts referring to the need to assign a drive letter to the 'Winre partition', what is that? I would appreciate detailed instructions as im not a computer savvy person. And if you are kind enough also..how to be able to leave out of the backup things like Recorded TV shows. Thank you kindly.
