Folks, My laptop's hard drive has three partitiions. I routinely do partition images of two of the three partitions - the third partition is simply a read-only copy of data from another PC so I don't want to waste time and space by backing it up. However, my concern is that, because I am doing two partition images rather than a single disk one, I am missing out on backing up the Master Boot record. - Am I omitting the Master Boot Record? If so, can I explicitly back it up? - Am I omitting anything else? - If my disk fails and I do a stand-alone restore of my two backed up partitions to a new drive, will I have to do anything else to boot from the new drive? I am using TI9 Build 3567, the partitions are NTFS and the operating system is XP Home. Thanks for any help, Brian.
