Before I go searching the Web, I was wondering if anyone could point me
to a recipe for backing up/restoring Windows partitions using linux and
My current distro of choice is Ubuntu.
Does anyone do this using an external USB HDD?
I was thinking of booting off a Live-CD if I couldn't boot off the USB-HDD.
Want a way to revert a Windows install easily - i.e. revert a partition.
Sorta 'Poor Man's Ghost'.
I don't know if Vista or WIn-XP might complain.
Thinking it shouldn't violate the licences - but others on this list
know about this stuff.
I have a cousin in QLD who's PC literate that's asked the question, and
I wrote what I hoped would be a recipe, but think this is something that
must be commonly done.
Thanks in Advance.
