Win7's Backup and Restore versioning, image / data interplay
Often when the factory recovery partition is no longer functioning, I will create a 25GB partition on the main hard drive and use it for a system image. Currently I use Windows 7's onboard facility to create the image. I like this because it's accessible from the F8 Advanced Boot Options menu.
But I'd like to add scheduled user file backups to the same partition, and that's where I find MS's instructions lacking in adequate detail. They talk about backups on an internal drive being supplanted by newer versions when space becomes limited. That's perfect if it's in relation to only the user data scheduled backups, but does it also endanger the initial system image, which I want to keep unmolested?
I'm looking for a two-tier system, where the original system image is left alone, and user data is backed up on a schedule with as many recent versions as will fit.
