I am needing to organize hard drive on Dell laptop-- to make backups simplier. As you may have guessed, my data, programs, OS, all reside in C: area of drive. My Dell has the hidden partition to restore XP2 and I have OS reinstallation CD from Dell, along with a TI ver 9 backup program. My question, is there any shortcut or easier way to accomplish this without having to painfully reinstall each program to D: and move all data to E:? Do I partition the C: drive first, then start this process? Could I backup to TI and then restore selected data to E:? Just very unclear on how to go about this.
