Hi, I was about to decide to partition my os drive to separate it from my data using partition wizard which was introduced to me in this forum. I have never really done it before. The reason for doing this is because I just want to adhere to microsoft best practices.

However, after reading this thread, it seems that it is quite risky to do so. Any recommendations on how to do a backup image? What kind of applications is it best to use? Personally, I have only used norton ghost before. Any comments?
