How to make a full Vista MCE backup without the Video?
Folks,
Does anybody know how to use Windows Vista Backup utility to copy my
main hdd to a smaller older ATA hdd without copying or backing up the videos
and recorded TV? The full backup requires144 GB of room and I only have
114 GB of room. I should have more than enough without the video, but the
backup program doesn't give me the option of doing a full backup without the
Video folders. I spent my budget on the new computer and Vista Ultimate
operating system and can't afford a fancy new external hdd to backup my
computer to. Any suggestions anybody?
Thank You,
Andy

You could relocate large video files to a separate partition before backing
up the system partition. Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Computer
Management->Storage->Disk Management. Right-click on your C: drive and
select 'Shrink Volume'. Give yourself enough free space to create a storage
partition. Once you move the large files to the new data partition, C: will
be much smaller.

fwiw, a 300GB HD with external USB 2.0 case only costs about $100.
