I've been using norton ghost for winxp/win2000 for quite a while

just noticed that since Vista's installation drive is NTFS (and some files are protected), you cant actually make a .gho file of winVista.

...just a public service message

fomatting has its own charm :P

but who likes formatting i had like my windows installation to last forever but everyday i experiment with a new software which fucks up my system like yesterday i tried Michele windows shell extension and didn’t removed it properly and when i restarted nothing would load (explorer.exe was making probs) thank god i didn’t had to format coz before formatting i do backup many things

system gets cluttered with unwanted junk over a passage of time,and does not get remove even when you uninstall softwares,just check the size of your windows\system32 folder size and you’d be surprised…
