I'm surprised you can still get them that small.

Got to use the Acer image in a real need situation Christmas eve
Updated to gpu tweak ll seems like a innocent thing to do right
Oops got a bsod so fast it only flashed and never booted again
Used the WinPE disk and guess what the external never came online

So i have to get another esata external from Fry's :/
Had to get what they had turns out it has some pretty bad reviews mostly from people using it on a raid... which I would not do anyway Enterprise 4x
Amazon.com: Hornettek Enterprise 4X USB3.0/eSATA 3.5-Inch 4 Bay Enclosure (HT-3402U3): Computers & Accessories
Got it for 89.us
Had to rig my 2.5 hdd in it but it did work so I might keep :/

Anyway it did work so all is good

Thanks but my system is ok I don't want to restore

I wil try your way but now what I want
Is just to know exactly how to take the all Windows 7 original backup files
And move them all from partition d that is full to external drive
And then contine to backup and update the old backup in the new drive without any third party
Just the original Windows 7 backup
Can all the backup files moved as stand Alon to new drive or even new computer?

If you made the backup with the Windows facilities, it will be very tricky if you move the files because the system will not automatically find them.

If you make a backup with Macrium, that is no problem.

can macrium transfer a windows partition to a different position on another drive? whenever i've tried to clone my w7/64pro partition to anywhere but the same starting sector on another drive it becomes unbootable.

i want to clone my w7 partition from its current position on a 250gb ssd to a position farther down on a 500gb ssd, leaving space ahead of it to expand the partition that precedes it. whenever i try this, it becomes unbootable. in other words, on the 250gb drive w7 starts at the, roughly, 120gb point. i want to clone it to the 500gb drive, starting it there at, roughly, the 200gb point. haven't been able to do that while keeping it bootable.

thanks,
BabaG

Don't clone but use imaging.
