I'm a little confused about this: I save several (different-dated) system images on my backup drive, with a pretty large partition reserved just for storing those system drive (C: ) images (the rest of the space on that drive is still unallocated). Now suppose I increase the size of the partition on the backup drive (which stores those images) to make more room for more of them, and subsequently save a few more backup images. Ok, no problem so far. But now if decide to restore a much earlier image (where the partition size on the backup drive was previously allocated as being much smaller), will I then lose the ability to access the newer and later image,s where I had later expanded the partition? I'm guessing it won't be a problem, and after the system reboots to restore the system drive backup, BIOS will report the new partition size to windows, and there won't be an issue, but I'm not sure of this.
