Windows 7: Back up onto partion

He's 14 and doesn't have any money for external. Might borrow his sisters to back up image. He can fit files on CD. So he'd have double back up with the data and image partitions.


Mitch, use these to do the cleanup and defrag. They're already uploaded for you to install:

Attachment 45579
Attachment 45580

Use the Cleaner and registry tabs on CCLeaner, then Defrag.

Then try to shrink Vista partition in Disk Management and see how much space it gives you.

That's why it's free

Did you ever figure out how much space your files take? CD is still an option since you have 1.4 gigs of CD there

I still strongly suggest you make a partition to save your Win7 Backup image so that you have an easy path back to your current installation if you get stuck during new install setup and nothing works to fix it.

Type backup in start search box, open Backup Center, click Create System Image, select DVD just to see how much disk space it wants, then shrink your Vista partition by that much space in Disk Management, format a Primary partition using this tutorial: Partition or Volume - Create New

I am here to help you

Put your files on the CD's if they will fit..

Put the image on the partition. It can be accessed even if the HD isn't bootable by booting Win7 DVD Repair console>Recover using an Image. It will auto-detect the image on HD partition if you format it Primary.

Once you get the files on CD, I will give you step-by-step.
