Windows 7: Windows 7 restored from backup disk

I think I have a System Image created on disk from when I had to do a clean restore about 6 months ago. I guess I didn't think to tell you that the only thing on this computer that did not come loaded on it is Microsoft Word, which I purchased and have the disk to reinstall if ever needed. Also, I have my Windows 7 disk that was purchased with my computer and since it is a Dell there is a copy of my computer with them. So basically what I am trying to say is that all I do is watch alot of Youtube and research different sites. There isn't anything on this computer that I have to worry about saving that I couldn't reinstall. I recently purchased a memory stick and installed it (yes, by myself) because I was worried about how full my C: is and I thought it would make my computer perform better. It still operates pretty well most of the time, but I do have a hesitation now and then and I don't have the patience to be on a computer that is not 'lightening fast..lol' and so this is where I find myself today. I hope I have now told you the information pertinent to this procedure. Thanks and waiting..

Just review my comments in this post # 10 and you should be good to go with Partition Wizard.

That was awesome. Thank you so much. You have no idea how much I appreciate the help. These situations are very frustration for people like me that are on computers every day, but don't know much about them. You are truly a gift. Thanks! Niikkee
