My second questions appears academic based on what you say.
What I meant was when you
* Go to your "My documents"..say > right click, select properties > select location tab > locate it on another partition.

Imaging preferences is an endless debate. Your favourite is always the best until it lets you down. I hedge bets with two:
(1) Windows imaging (hasn't let me down yet)
(2) Macrium Reflect (easy to use, strong following). A simple double click mounts the image for browsing if required.

I tried Paragon as well but you have to draw the line somewhere.
