Windows 7: More Than One System Image on a Disk

More Than One System Image on a Disk

I think I would like to buy a large external HD on which to keep system images from my laptop and desktop. Is it possible to do this -- two images on one disk, not go a buy one?

Perhaps two folders on the new disk will do the job, one for the laptop and one for the desktop.

Thank you.

I can't see why this wouldn't be possible. An image is the same as an ISO and I have many of those on one drive.

Thank you, Fluffy.

I was too impatient when I posted my question. I should have investigated further before posting. I found, much to my surprise, that the WindowsImageBackup folder will contain subfolders, one for each machin. I just tried it and have one for the laptop and another for the desktop. Great!

Thanks again.
