    Hi guys,

    Didnt really know where to put this...im using a program called storage craft...its very similar to ghost or acronis true image for making drive images or backups. My question is...if you make a drive image of a hard drive that has a virus or malware and leave it on a hard drive with another few images...can it infect those good images? i mean is it safe to keep like 10 hdd images on the same external hard drive?

    thanks
