For years I've always used Norton Ghost and more recently Easeus Partition Master to Ghost / copy disk my entire HDD system drive to another HDD as my method of backing up. I prefer this method as if something goes wrong I simply replace the Hard drive with my ghost copy one then format the troubled disk which becomes the new backup ghost copy.
A few months ago I upgraded my system with a 128gb OCZ Vector Solid State drive as the windows boot drive and use two HDD's in RAID-0 for games and software plus a 2gb HDD as the storage/junk drive. Using Easeus Partition Master I've been able to ghost the OCZ vector SSD to my spare 1TB HDD Seagate but haven't had any success trying to copy that back from the HDD to the SSD. My system is UEFI / AHCI capable so windows is installed using UEFI which uses I think three or four partitions. Copying that to the HDD is straight forward, I end up with the four little partitions on the HDD with a massive 892gb unallocated space behind it. The problem is I can't obviously copy or ghost the whole 1TB on to any 128gb disk and trying to copy the individual partitions back to the SSD without the 892gbs of unallocated space is too fiddly which I haven't successfully been able to do yet.
Is it possible to do what I'm trying to achieve here or do I need to buy another 128gb SSD to do this ?
Perhaps there is another method for backing up an SSD disk image ?
