Drive Backups - HELP!!

  laurieballard 20:04 22 Aug 2007

I want to make a Ghost image of my OS. The problem is that both Norton Ghost and Drive Image will only let me backup the whole Hard Drive. My Hard Drive is 300gb so dont want to back it all up.

i just need the operating system and installed programs. Is there any program/other way this can be done.

Any helo would be appreciated.

As far as I am aware you can only image the full drive or a partition, the image is a snapshot of the drive. The only way to do what you want would be to take an image before programs have been added

How much of your HDD has actually been used ? My 160gb HDD has only 9gb of data & my Ghost backup fits on to 1 DVD.
