I bought a small 32 GB SSD to store the operating system (Windows 7) and my applications.
I'll copy the existing boot partition (30 GB) from my harddisk (WD Velociraptor) to the SSD using GParted but I'd like to keep the existing partition intact (keeping all data on it) so I can go back to it if there is a problem with the SSD.
How can I hide the partition so it is not visible anymore to Windows? What should I change with GParted?
Second question: how can I keep the harddisk partition synced with the SSD so I have a backup? I'm looking for a near real-time solution (not something like Acronis Drive Image).
