I am using windows 7 pro 64bit. I want to back up the OS and am using the system image option. I think it wants to back up my whole computer and all I want is to keep my OS and maybe drivers. I am guessing it wants to back up everything becuase my external harddrive has 130 free gigs and it thinks it may not have enough free space. I would guess I need 30 gigs MAX for a OS back up image.

Any tips, tricks, or known programs better suited for my needs? Please post.
