I'm in the process of rebuilding my brothers laptop (dell Studio 1737). As the hard drive was fried, we've opted for a (relatively) small SSD for the OS and apps - a 120gb sandisk - plus a 500gb WD second HD for his files.
I'm thinking it would be a good idea to partition off a section of the second HD to make an OS-only backup area with a drive clone. I'm not worried about cloning any apps he'll install later, just want to make a complete finished OS clone.
What sort of size would you make the partition for that, and any advice, tips or suggestions I might want to take on board at this point?!
