But I'm going crazy here and I need to know, I have a 75g HD with a partition, 60g in one and 15g in the other. I'm using 17.94g in one and 4.70g in the other. Can I just buy a 32g flash drive and drag each one into it and call that a backup? That would be just under 23g, and if I ever lost all my data or bought a new computer just drag them into the new one? Or do I need to clone it, and if so, why? I've been reading about this all day and I'm lost... Thank you.
