Back Up Several Partitions to One HD

Recommended Posts

Hi Dantzers,




I want to reformat my internal HD, which has five partitions. I really only need three partitions. I also have two FW drives, one with a bootable OS X on it. The other empty FW drive would be used to hold the back up of the internal HD. I need to know if I run a onetime Immediate Backup of my internal drive with Retrospect 5.1 running on the booted FW OS X disk, that Retrospect will copy all the materials from all of my internal drive's partitions.




If so, after backing up the internal drive, I would reformat the same drive with Disk Utility while still booted off the FW OS X drive and then restore from the Immediate Backup.




Does this sound feasible? Any gotchas that you can see?
