    Is it possible to do a system image backup not including data / documents, etc. I do a backup of MyDocs, Pics and Video every day but don't want to do a System Image Backup each day. Is there a way to do a System Image backup without including all the extra 'stuff'. In other words, I'd just like the system and program stuff backed up in case of a crash. I can then migrate my data over from my backup drive manually (Karen's Replicator). Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The easiest way would be to partition the drive. Use one for the system and all of your data on the other.

    Thanks so much, why on earth didn't my brain think of that!!??? I guess it's because I'm not used to partitions as on my PC, I only use my C: for system and programs, and my other separate drives for data. The above question was related to my laptop with only one drive. Great idea, thanks for that!
