Windows file/folder backup (.zip files) and System imaging (.vhd files) are completely different programs. MS just decided to lump them under the same "Backup and Restore" banner.

I don't see a way around creating another larger volume since you appear to be running out of space and Truecrypt volumes do not allow for resizing. As pparks1 has said I can't see the problem. If...

Yes I'm sorry for contributing to that but I think the OP can take it that most feel it is not worth bothering altering the services if some performance advantage is to be gained.

I think this is where Norton has an advantage in that it tries to interpret the behaviour of possible malware and labels it as such if it appears so. I have used Norton for many years (>12) and have...
