With the Windows 7 image program, if you make an image of just the system partition it will cause a problem when you do a restore. It will see the other partitions on the drive and will wipe them out when it restores and all you will have is the system partition. If you do a "disk" image (images the entire disk) then it will restore the disk to its original state. This is the safest way to protect all your data.

So until I get another TB I'll just keep my setup as it is.
