I want to add a partition to the drive but don't want to start from ground zero with all the files and customization when glueing it back together.

I found a simple freebie called InVisible that toggles between making visible all files that are invisible and vice versa. If every file is visible, would it be possible to make a series of CDs or a DVD or two of the systems and files as they are now, then copy them back to the partitions and expect them to work after returning the invisibles back to their proper state?

And using InVisible, would it be possible to create a boot disk that would allow me to see and work with the hard drive and partitions?

Oh for the simple days when I could boot my LC from a single floppy running OS 6. Multifinder was the beginning of the end.
QUOTE Thanks
