Yeah, you're going to have to get some sort of partition tool. I don't think theres a free one, so you'll probably have to spend some cash.

If you happend to have a DVD burner, a 80 gig backup takes around 5 dvd's with nero back up :)

I still like usign a partition manager, cpying files, and soon you end up with a HDD dedicated to stuff you need after formats/everyday useful DLed programs :D I use The Acronis DiskDirector Suite 9.0 but i think Paragon Partition manager has a free trial that will let you do what you need to do.

Yeah, What's up with that? My math tells me that it would take ~17 DVD's

 

:huh:

EDIT: "he may be talking about dual layer disks. they hold around8"

 

But even then it would still take over 10 DVD's
