Backing up Boot Camp partition while in OS X

Recommended Posts

[While the title of the forum is "Linux, Unix & Netware Clients," I will make the assumption that this includes OS X clients as well. If so, it would be good to include that in the Forum name.]


Running Retrospect Single Server 7.0.344, update on Windows Server 2003 Std Ed, SP2.


Just installed Vista via Boot Camp to my MacBook Pro, and am planning on backing up the BC partition (partition is NTFS, read-only in OS X) while the Mac is booted in OS X. A few questions:


- Should this method of backing up my Vista partition work correctly?

- I also use VMware Fusion to access the Vista install. Is there any "official" recommendation about if that shouldn't be running while backing up?

- Has anyone done a successful whole-partition restore in this setup?


Thanks for any feedback.
