    Well, there is many facts, but it doesnt change anything. The fact is, humanity will be destroyed, the question is, how long this circus will go on before it will happen. Oh, almost forgot, humanity is all about fair business, they are so perfect, that the biggest crime in this perfect world is overdue library books, http://www.escapistmagazine.com/foru...ox-One-on-eBay .

    I am fully capable myself of defining what is good and what is bad, and where to draw the line, i dont need some corupted, out of date, buggy and rotten law to tell me what i cant do or what i can.

    Hi there

    You can restore the WHOLE disk of course-- so long as the GPT GUIDS were written (or Sector 0 and the MBR for an MBR HDD). The partitions are differently organised of course so restoring an individual partition to a differently formatted HDD is not easily possible. The whole partition setup (and hence partition tables and the boot sector are different).

    If you use something like Acronis you can mount the backup image with Windows / File explorer and access the files on it so if it's a data partition (rather than the OS) you can use Windows to retrieve any set of directories or files from the image and write to another HDD (simply Cut and Paste).

    Cheers

    For me it is not only "free" or "cheap" or "expencive" when I will be thinking about Windows 9, but how much Win9 is clouded. Some rumors state that the smallest version of windows 9 will only run online. I don't want that, for free or even if MS want to pay me for using it!!!

    I guess I will just wait and see (like many other people) when (and if) there will be a preview version of windows 9. Until then I'm back at windows 7 SP1.

    You don't need to create/use a MS ID. There is the option when installing or first using Windows 8 to use a local account (similar to previous windows versions). I don't have a MS ID, and don't plan on ever getting one, and my Win 8 works perfectly.

    Hi there - I don't think Bill Gates is at all bad -- he doesn't do much if anything with Ms these days and the Gates Foundation gives more money to 3rd world and other charities etc than almost any other organisation on Earth - in fact BIGGER than a lot of entire countries do.

    Ms and Windows has bought computing available to almost everbody at comparitavely cheap prices - just imagine most businesses wiithout PC's or only having access to incredibly exensive Mainframes -- we've actually all benefited enormously either directly or indirectly from Ms in the past.

    If people want to sprout this type of typical "Agitprop" (Now there's a 1960's term !!), or rent a mob type of Left Wing rubbish - please get your facts correct and blame the PROPER people.

    Of course people have legitimate concerns with the way Ms appears to be moving in future such as Cloud and subscription services but so far we don't have any evidence to suggest that Windows 9 will be a subscription or Cloud based OS.

    Cheers

    Without M$ we would be all stuck with Macintosh and Apple's price gouging for HW, horrendous worker exploitation (that's not Agitprop).

    Actually without Ms there might not even BE an Apple corporation -- or it would probably be simply a hardware music / phone manufacturer - very much smaller than today -- remember Steve Jobs was purely focused on Ipods in the beginning - he didn't want VIDEO at all. Of course with phones and the advent of mico sdHC cards who needs an Ipod any more -- 64GB of music on a phone is more than sufficient even for people who seem to be attached to their bud earphones 24 hrs a day.

    Yes, I also forgot to mention that Apple was working closely with MS for long time. Good part of coding and programs like Office were done by MS, not to forget GUIs that came from same source at the beginning.
