Preserving Data Partition D: on subsequent re-imaging
Red-Drop last edited by
My organization is mostly a Mac and Linux shop and i have built SOEs for both of those OS’s.
We have roughly 20 odd Windows machines around the place with various hardware from various vendors
and I have decided to finally give the windows people some love and build a SOE for them.
Now in the Linux and OSX SOE’s I have always separated the user data from the operating system and applications onto separate partitions so that the machines can be re-imaged easily without the need to backup the users data before restoring it. I was hoping to do the same with the Windows 7 clients as well.
The current partition setup on Win7 machines that have been built by hand is as so:
/dev/sda2 (between 50-120GB) System C:
/dev/sda3 (Remainder of the Disk) D:
Samba4 AD Group Policy is configuring machines to currently place the Users folder onto D:\Users\
Is it possible to have FOG only destroy the sda1 and sda2 partitions and leave the sda3 (D: Partition in tact) On re-imaging the client?
Thanks in advance,
