That Ok we all start some where.
is a partition. It is located on a hard drive.
You hard drive is similar to a file cabinet.
The partitions are the draws.
Then you have the hanging file folders. Main folder like "Programs Files".
The folder within the hanging file folders. Programs like "MS Word".
The files like "Resume.doc".
You can have several "Partitions" (draws) on one hard drive (File Cabinet). The main is called the "Primary partition" (Usually C:\) and the others are "Logical partitions" and "Extented partitions" which are different "Partitions" (draws) on the same hard drive (File Cabinet).
This is how you seperate Data to protect it in case you need to reinstall Windows. You will only need to clean one "Partition" (draw) not the whole "Hard drive" (File Cabinet). Does this make since?
When I recommended you use Digital Dolly, I was explaining how to use it. You will have to download it to a folder on your hard drive. Then expand it with a "unzip" utility into that same folder. You will need to use a program to write it to a CD-R. It will have to be saved in the file format .iso . It is just another will type of file like .doc, .jpg, .gif, .exe, but allows your computer to use it to boot your computer. Without being saved to this type of file format the program will not work. Make since?
I hope I have not confused you futher?
