    It will only unconfuse me until I clone the drive or reboot the PC again. :)
    Have you tried to rename drives ? Trre's no way to have 2 C: drives or any drives/ partitions with same letter.

    I've renamed them in My Computer, or did you mean elsewhere?

    Yes it will but for one instance you will know which one is which. As pointed out, there are other ways to keep ready backup without those pitfalls. RAID array for instance: RAID - Wikipedia where data is written to at least two disks at once.

    Mike, won't Partition Wizard change the disk signature?

    Yeah, it would give it another serial number but that would also be cloned and BIOS has no idea about it so it can still be confused. Even every simple format changes serial number.
