i tried parallels a few weeks ago and it crashed my blackbookIt's solely a Mac backup program, and works with HFS+ volumes, as Spec just pointed out.
On a related note... that's one of the reasons why some folks prefer Parallels Desktop over Bootcamp for running Windows on an Intel Mac. Parallels Desktop doesn't use a separate Windows (ie: FAT32) file system volume, and therefore gets backed up during a regular Mac backup routine.
this will do the trick Norton Ghost but i think it best to get it bundled with Norton System Works Premier EditionThanks, MacSpectrum. Appreciate your effort.
That's too bad about SuperDuper.
On a related note, can anybody recommend any Windows-equivalent to SuperDuper?
1. Yes and Yes.Actually I have a SuperDuper question:
1. Can it:
- Create a bootable hard disk for my iMac; AND
- Create a separate partition that will back up my iDisk
2. I figure it would go something like this:
- Reformat external HD with two partitions
- Use SuperDuper to create a bootable disk from the first partition
- Create a separate backup of the iDisk on the other partition
I have only used the free version of SuperDuper so far (very seldom) and this would mean upgrading to the commercial version. Fine by me, but I want to know if it is possible.
PS: for those who ask why in the world I would want to back up an iDisk. Because Apple has screwed up royally with the iDisk upgrade and I have spent the past 4 days fixing the damage.
I estimate I need another 3-4 days to get things right... tptptptp
