I don't use Ghost, but there's plenty of members here who do. They state that it's easy to use.
I've grown accustomed to Acronis True Image and I like it's features.
Leave the Ghost stuff alone for now. It'll help to have a safety net while learning to use Acronis.
Just install the Acronis software, select the drive to image (your boot/os drive) and then select the 300 gB drive as the destination and let it run. In my experience the process takes about ½ hour to do (a lot depends on the size of your hard drive).
Once the initial image is made, then you can make another and start adding to it incrementally. That way you've got a backup to the backup.
The key to any backup (or image) is a trial reinstall of the image to see if it works. Without that, you're completely trusting the software to work flawlessly - not a good idea. Once you've verified it, then the image is safe to store. Then you can work with the incrementals with an increased awareness of the abilities of the program.
