restoration from systems image will it effect the non back up drives

Hi all,

I have dual boot windows systems (windows XP in c: drive and windows 7 in d: drive) and e,f,g and h drives (all are type basic ) are for my personnal data (not concerning with Operating systems) now i want to make systems image of c and d drive.

but i dont know what will happen when i try to restore the systems using this systems image. I mean will it effect the data in e,f,g or h drive or just re-format the c and d drive and restore the systems image from DVD.

does anyone has a concrete answer. i dont want to loose my data in e,f,g or h drive.

thanks in advance.

Hi dazzlerboy,

Are these separate hard drives or partitions? Anyway, restoring your drives from a CD shouldn't mess with your other drives if you do i correctly. But if these other drives have important files on them, I recommend backing up onto an External HDD before restoring to the image.

Hope this helps,
Jaidyn
