Windows 7 / Vista file lock?
Hi. I have been XP user of my PC (only me using this PC) with admin.
privileges.

I have always used two similar installations (one on C:\ and no. two on E:\
(then with the biggest partition in the middle as D:\ for my 'Desktop',
'Favourites', 'Document' and backup)). This has been a very good way for me
to always have a total failure free installation to work on (I can delete
the installation files on the other installation and just copy back from the
backup whilst I work with whatever. And updates is fast to handle).



Now, as I do think of going over to Windows 7, how easy is it to doing the
same there? (or does Windows 7 /Vista have so much security locks on the
files that it's impossible?)



And if it's not possible to do it 'my old way' how can I solve this to be
done pretty much the old way (is there an image program which can handle
such operation- which also handle the root/start-up files?)? Thanks,
JohS

are both the same in that area.

In the event you had a startup problem, you could run a startup repair,
found on the installation DVD.

There is no need to manually copy files over.
