He apparently wanted to move it around and change its name. Now I do this myself, storing multiple renamed copies in folders for seven different computers on my External HDD, but when it is time to reimage I change the name back and put it in the root.

Another easier way to do this is to format a primary NTFS partition on a secondary HDD which will be auto-detected by the Create an Image app for storage by itself where it will remain unmolested and available to reimage the main HDD or a replacement.
