1. I WAS NOT YELLING AT ANYBODY. I was emphasizing my question to make it clear. If capitalizing is taken as yelling in computer world - I certainly didn't know about it.
2. I DO KNOW that restoring Windows partition is going to erase everything on it including applications and my files etc. and it needs to be reinstalled.
But I wasn't asking about it. That's why I emphasized - because it didn't seem I made myself clear.
I don't care if I loose files on Windows partition, I never keep anything too important there other then the OS
. I do care however about my other partition being formatted and erased in the process.
I reinstall Windows quite often (about once every 5-6 months) for different unrelated reasons so if I need ot back up my whole computer to do it it seems like a waist of time that's why I was happily using Vista's option of restoring just the System partition. I would love to be able to know how to do that under Windows 7. I wasn't trying to offend anybody neither I needed a lecture. Just the answer if there is one.
