    I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 that has its old MediaDirect partition.
    Completely forgot to remove it when I installed Vista. And its at the
    beginning of the drive :[.

    What I want to know is if doing a complete back up and restore will
    repartition my drive to the same setup as when I backed it up, or if I can
    restore to one partition without having to worry about the MediaDirect
    partition popping up again.

  2. I think it might depend on how that Media Direct partition is flagged. When
    you run Complete PC Backup, is this partition selected by default (and
    unselectable?) If so, then I would assume this partition will be added back
    during restore. On the other hand, you can use wbadmin.exe, the command-line
    equivalent to Complete PC Backup, to back up individual partitions.
