Mounted folder question

The OS partition is getting small, I plan to mount it to an empty folder on another partition with plenty of room. Are mounted folders/drives a good idea? Any issues in this, say during a full restore (if ever need to)?

Are you talking about windows right?

I think there is no problem with mounted parititions. You can free space on the os partition by moving the pagefile.sys file. Use system propoerties to do that.

When restoring, ensure that "Restore Junction Points, But Not The Folders And File Data They Reference" is not enabled.

Also check the "Preserve Existing Volume Mount Points" option. Prevents the restore operation from writing over any volume mount points on the destination volume.
