However, you could store your 3 TB of files in say a folder or multiple folders on a non system drive, then include the folder(s) in a library or libraries
of your choice. This way you can also access the files from the library, and not have them included in a system image.
Hope this helps,
Yes that's what I was thinking as well. I have two 5tb externals, both of which have 3tbs of matching data. The logic being that if one of them fails, the other is still safe, hence I say double backed up.
So what I was thinking is to delete all the files on my computer, (which I have twice backed up) except for the OS and necessary software, drivers
, ect., just the stuff to keep the computer running normally, because thats the only stuff I need backed up in my image. At that point, I create the system image, which should be fairly small in size because I will just have the basics on it. (I would like it small enough to fit on under 10 disks) After that I could just load any of the files I want on my computer from one of my externals. 99% of the files I have on these externals are movies, music, pictures, stuff I do not need on my PC unless I choose to have it there.
Do you understand what I am saying? I basically just want an image of my PC that existed when I first took it out of the box and turned it on for the first time. Do you think that would be a reasonable way to go about it achieving this?
