Radish Posted May 11, 2015 Share Posted May 11, 2015 Hi, I just got a new computer that came with Win7 Pro. x64 pre-installed by the system manufacturer. I have no previous experience of using Win7 (just many years of using WinXP). If I Iook at the way the pre-install was done I find that I have the following HDD partitioning scheme: Partition 1: 'Hidden' 8.30 GB (Recovery Partition) - (no file-system information shown for this partition)Partition 2: 'Hidden' 300 MB (System, Active, Primary Partition) NTFSPartition 3: Windows 7 (C:) 100 GB (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) NTFS I have some vague notion of what these partitions are. However, what I don't know is if Partitons 1 and 2 change their content in any way over time. I really need to know this so that I can work out what I'm going to backup on a regular basis by way of using 'disk imaging' software (I use TeraByte Image for Windows for disk imaging backups). So could someone tell me if Partition 1 changes over time as I make changes on Partition 3 (the Windows partition)? Likewise, can someone tell me if the content of Partiton 2 changes over time as I make changes to Partition 3? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
