    You could take a image of the OS from time to time (when happy with it) and restore that. Acronis True Image/Ghost etc.

    My main question is, why do you frequently reinstall?

    True Image is generally rated better than Norton Ghost. There are other imaging solutions, some may even be free.

    You would for cases like you mention create another parttiton of perhaps 10Gb just for storing images. Any imaging solution can split the image over a number of files of specified size, no problem, but it is a longer, more complicated process, less safe process than just copying to another partition.
