You mean the stock Windows 7 Imaging Software works well with GPT? smile.gif

Does Win7 Ultimate also have this software?

Yep, I Windows 7 pro, ultimate and enterprise editions have the ability to do it perfectly. No need to 3rd party software if you have either. smile.gif

I dunno, I'll check monday @ work. If it does you may already have passed the level of technical knowledge with this partitioning styles than what's contained in the "training book" biggrin.gif.

Well refer to the info above, but I did read something about doing it in command prompt.

So what was all the fuzz about stock image recovery softwares not working with GPT? Why did it work properly for you this time?

IDK, I think I was just reading too much into other programs and I didn't try Windows in the first place lol.Only a few programs can though, like I said in teh op. If someone is using home edition then they need acronis or test out clonezilla.

You just haven't been running your HDD enough.biggrin.gif

It only takes once. You can never have enough back-ups. As in back-ups of back-ups. I have stuff from 15years ago on my HDD. If it weren't for back-ups, all would have been lost when my house got robbed 4 years ago, and the PC was never seen again.

Very nice Sean, thanks! The RAM disk looks especially intriguing and I might try it when I have more than 4Gb of ram in my system.
