- Is it possible to backup and restore more than 1 partition?For example, I have a multi-boot computer. And I want to backup them all(Windows xp, Windows 7, and Ubuntu)
- If it is possible, what are the applications that offer this kind of feature?
- Please give me an idea on how this works. If ever its possible.
The type of backup program is called disk imaging/cloning which can be likened to taking a snapshot/image of your disk/partition at the point in time at which you take it. Taking an image of a partition means you can later restore this image to another partition. Taking a disk image takes an image of the whole disk, normally including the boot sectors etc (so the bootable part of the disk is preserved).
if you watch out on GiveAwayofTheDay paragon are always giving away a free copy of their tools.
There are also lots of Linux based live cds that can do this, although I have not had much luck with them on Windows partitions.
