    You can also make a MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc and use that to shrink the system partition and make a partition to hold the image you can create with Macrium Reflect.

    Or, for that matter, make the MiniTool Partition Wizard boot disc, shrink the existing system partition to as small as possible, create a new partition for a clean install, set it as active, then do the clean install to it. Once you have everything copied over from the old partition that you want/can then delete that partition and expand the new system partition to fill the space. Just be careful to know where your boot files are before you delete the partition.
    i dont think that will work but thanks :P

    It will work to save your music folder at least. I've got access to 30gb of music files and over 2000 photos contained in system images.... But it's your data and loss thereof.
