Question.

I've done image backups ala Acronis for awhile now and it's been easy, not to mention a life-saver sometimes. But at the moment my main system is down for other repairs and I'm bumming on this old laptop... so I was thinking...

How easy or possible is it to clone and restore multiple partitions from the same hard drive? I'd imagine tools like Acronis could do it in manual mode but I've never seen any specific option offered before. Could Paragon's tools do it?

I have two different SSDs - both of which have seperate legal copies of Windows 7 on them and different programs / configurations. Both used capacities would fit under the 320 GB HDD I have sitting here as my imaging drive. I'm wanting to basically clone both installs to the same drive but be able to pull up one or the other to restore from depending on my needs.

Usually programs like Acronis will let you manually select partition size but they seem to prompt a full disk erasure if a partition exists on an already-partitioned drive before it begins a backup session, thus I wasn't sure if this is even possible.

Thanks for any help!
