And all you need to do is create a partition that's large enough to hold your stuff; then back up your primary drive to the partition. If and when the time comes to restore, run Ghost and expand the backup image to your primary drive. Presto: You're back in business

For the best results, start with a fresh install of Windows, then load your applications, utilities, and drivers. Make sure to install all the latest updates as well, especially for Windows and your security software. Finally, tweak your system so it's exactly the way you like it: video resolution, wallpaper, the works.

Create The Partition
Fire up PartitionMagic (or a similar utility) and create a partition with enough available space to hold Windows and your apps. Ten gigabytes should be ample for most users (remember, the backup image will be compressed), but consider making it larger if you have a lot of programs installed or storage space to burn.

NTFS is the file system. As for the partition type, the active partition is the one that boots the system. You need to create a logical drive (that is, one you can assign a drive letter), which will live in an extended partition—the app takes care of that part.

Set Up Ghost
Run Ghost (or a similar utility) to create a new backup. Don't bother with scheduling, as this particular backup is a one-time-only affair. Disabling your virus checker prior to starting the backup is a good idea; AV can gum up the works.

Recover
To use the recovery partition, make sure you've backed up all your vital data to another drive or removable media, then boot your PC with the Ghost CD loaded in the optical drive. You'll then be able to restore from the partition to your primary drive, resulting in a ready-to-roll PC with all your apps, drivers, and settings loaded.

Check your motherboard BIOS specs. I know that Windows XP can see a larger hard drive but some BIOS issues could limit the maximum partition.
(My XP box started with a small drive but I added a larger SATA drive later and formated it with the XP disc management software. One caveat: I was using SP3)

To expand your partition, try using a third party partitioning software option. These will often save you from having to reinstall the os (sometimes things go wrong but mostly they are good). I've had good luck with Paragon Partition Manager and Partition Magic (before it was purchased by Symantec).

I hope this helps.

Well there is an array of programs out there that can do this for you. I suggest gparted. If you download the gparted iso and burn it to a disk. You can boot from the disk and then you follow the onscreen instructions. You can divide the partitions in any way you see fit. If you have any questions on using the program you can always contact me and I'd be happy to answer

You can't. The partition was created by SONY to hold recovery files because so many people lose their installation disks. So SONY created the partition, loaded the special software on it and put options in the menu to use it.
