Hi Guys, I need to delete, restore, a XP Home partition: c:\ system d:\ data d drive to be deleted, re-create, restore data, I'll use Acronis TI to backup prior to this adventure: Questions: 1. In 'Disc Mgt' highlight d:\ right click <delete> a) After delete is it just one big c:\ drive b) After delete do I need to reboot 2. Create partition a) Disc Mgt r-click Hashed lined area of C:\ choose create b) Do I need to choose something here 'logical' <or other mystery word> c) Do I get to choose a NAME for the volume & size d) Is the drive letter assigned by the OS? It must be D: right? e) Do I now need to format the new D:\ drive? 3. Restore a) Using TI 10 recovery wizard, I presume/hope, I can choose D:\ as target drive & choose, from my full backup with increments, from external hdd the data, I previously backed up? Any <mystery words> in this step <any word involving a choice not on this post = mystery> Thanks Guys Rico ps Murphy is luckier than I am.
