Connected Systems Chilled Out Blog Hanging stuff together in a meaningful way with some fun added

As previously mentioned I have lived with Beta and RC before arriving at Release. Downside has been the re-builds. The upside and this is Goodie #2 is the ability to use VHD’s mounted as ‘real’ hard drives has been a saviour!

I have setup a number of Virtual drives and when I boot in I re-mount them. I have a Data drive (docs and outlook achieve), Software Installs drive (my downloads drive really), Code drive and finally and iTunes drive.

Once a week I copy off each VHD to my NAS at home.

So when re-building my machine I simply copied them off. Re-built, installed the basics, re-copied them back and re-mounted.

As the say where I’m from: job’s a goodun!

The job seems to have simplified a lot with the new system. Glad to know about these things which can be done without many complex mechanisms with the new windows version. Thanks for the share and keep sharing more useful stuff here. textile company
