Ok, this is my situation... I have a Compaq computer, and it didn't come with an XP install CD, instead, I have a partition on my hard drive, SYSTEM_SAV (D: ), which has an image of XP on it, and I have a Restore CD which is used to access the image. The (D: ) partition takes up about 7GB, and I would like to get that extra space back, but if I reformat it, I won't have the ability to reinstall XP again. My question is, if I use Norton Ghost or Drive Image to make an image of the (C: ) drive, will I be able to reformat and delete the (D: ) drive to gain that extra 7GB, and use that image to reinstall XP? Also, in the future, if i decide to install another OS like 2000, ME or Longhorn, will I still be able to go back and use that image to get XP back? Thanks in advance guys.
