Thankyou for the reply. I will leave the ubuntu problem for a later date. At the moment I have a fresh install of windows7 on an 80GB hard drive (this hard drive is the only one plugged in at the moment untill I decide to try ubuntu on another hard drive at a later date)
I have just had windows 7 installed on an 80GB hard drive. It has taken up about 50GB so far, so I want to use the rest of this hard drive for more programmes.
So I thought I would back up on an external Hard drive.
My external Hard drive is 2TB and contains lots of files already.
My main question is do I need to partition my external or can I just create a folder?
Sorry, i'm quite new to all this and am trying to learn as much as I can as I go along.
'In one partition root Windows will recognize an image folder called WindowsImageBackup'
Is this on my 80GB windows drive?
I haven't created a back up/image yet or do you mean there is automatically one already?
Are you saying that I can move this to my external?
