Image to Partition on System HDD
Hey guys, my first post!
I am not able to get a backup drive right now so would like to use my same system HDD on laptop to keep one bootable Image of my Windows 7 System on. I have Recovery Media Disks but have no Recovery Partition and don't need the space.
Was thinking if creating a 50GB Storage Partiton next to C:Drive, and then 100GB Partition for this AOMEI Backup Image. When I ran the AOMEI Software with a 64gb Flash it was not enough space for the Image. The Flash only had like 58GB of space and the image needed 60something. Some have told me not to do this but I'm not sure why, just want to use what I have to prevent a Full Re-Install of Windows 7 because it is so much work to do so. Not doing this in case of HDD failure?
I was thinking this could be done by Marking this AOMEI Partition as Active when it was needed and then reboot to it, then reinstall to the C:Drive. Can someone tell me if this would work?
