    Hmmm ok. I think I will give myself 3 options:

    1) Reinstall Windows/all softwares I have. And then create 2 partitions; 1 OS and the other for documents (I presume its like having an SSD and a HD. The SSD has the OS/some programmes and HD has everything else)

    2) Create partition using current internal HD using Simrick's method

    3) Just create the image (13 hours) onto my external HD. Yes I know its long but I think for now its the easiest solution? Saves having to go through the arduous task of reinstalling and downloading everything!

    Although reinstalling Windows is probably the best solution for me; it will make imaging quicker, it will make defragging quicker, and it will make my PC faster..but its something I will most likely do at a later date.

    Thank you all for clearing everything up, I appreciate it as its my first time using this wonderful website. Looks like I will just create a full image once a month!

    Many Thanks,

    Costa :)
