yes, it will overwrite the previous one. if you want to prevent that from happening, change the name of the previously created image. I usually just add an underscore and type a key identifier. The default is WindowsImageBackup. So I change my clean install to WindowsImageBackup_Intital Install. The trick is, you will have to name it back in order to use it. So lets say your main OS drive goes, and you don't want to remove your secondary drive to access it and rename the backup image; you can just replace the hard drive, do a quick install, access the second hard drive, rename it back to default, and image it over to the main OS drive.
