I'm issued a SafeBoot encrypted computer at work, and I'd like to decrypt, clone, and then reinstall with something cross-platform like TrueCrypt. In order to have a clone that's useful at all, I need to backup while I'm logged in to Windows 7, otherwise I'll just be cloning encrypted data. My end goal is to have a dual boot system, but this is impossible with SafeBoot.
I do this regularly with Carbon Copy Cloner on my home Mac and it works fine. Surely there's something that makes a bootable backup for Windows 7?
Is what I'm trying to do feasible?
Spare any comments re. this not being a good idea. I'm aware of the risks, if any. I've conversed about my doings with a higher-up in IT who I know well, I've discussed my Linux use with the IT center, etc. They know, they don't care, but they're not going to help and I'm not going to ask my manager to sign stuff to authorize an actual decryption of my whole system (removal of SafeBoot) just for this.
I just want to see if it's feasible. If it's not, I'll just use VirtualBox or something.
Thanks for any suggestions.
