    I have done a clean install of Pro on my laptop and created a primary partition with an extended containing logical drives of D and E.
    I have used Ghost to back up the clean installation of all three partitions with just the basic operating system.
    Now I have all the programs I want loaded on C do I need to ghost d and e as well? Obviously C has changed but D and E have not.

    Sounds daft but I'd like your thoughts :tune

    AJ,

    Nowt! Just wondering if Ghost works in some strange way that could affect the C partition if the others were not backed up with it- even though I have them backed up in the first ghost :morebeer

    Nope, you can backup and restore partitions selectively if you want to. In this case you could just backup your primary partition (drive C) and not bother with the others.

    Having said that, if there is nothin on them, they aren't going to add anything size wize to your backup and will save you the effort of re-partitioning them again should you decide to restore from your backup in the future.
