1) I have Norton Ghost. Is the best idea to partition my computer and put the ghost copy in that partitioned area as opposed to putting it on 4 or 5 cd's?

2) I have Paragon for my 64 bit Vista, and I'm starting to feel like a moron. I will go through the complete set-up portion of making a partition, and it says it's only in a virtual set-up at this point. So I 'apply' those actions and it brings up an error saying that it can't complete the task b/c C: drive is being used. Uh, yeah, of course it is, how do they think I'm running that dang program! Obviously this must be my mistake/error, so any help would be very much appreciated.

3) Is 25 gigs enough for the general 'Joe' to partition?

Thank you!

Having it on a separate partition is OK it the C: partition becomes corrupt, but it won't be of any use if the hard drive becomes damaged. I put mine on a USB hard drive

Not familiar with Paragon, sorry

25 gigs should be fine
