I've been evaluating Drive Backup Professional for personal use for a few days now, and it seems to have all the functionality I need, however I've been a little confused by the behavior of the disk backup functionality. My system has two primary partitions (one with an NTFS file system for Windows XP and the other with an ext3 FS for Linux), and one logical partition for Linux swap. I am running Drive Backup on Windows XP and am attempting to backup the entire drive, storing the image on an external hard drive. There are three things: 1. I've backup-ed my entire drive twice, the first time it was able to backup the entire drive online, that is, within Windows. The second time it had to restart the computer and load Drive Backup at boot. While I did open a browser the second time, I didn't expect it to be able to backup the entire drive without a restart at all. Is this normal? 2. The first time (without restart) created an image that was substantially (~15GB) larger than the second. 3. Both times I had Drive Backup backup the entire drive, including the first track (MBR). However, the MBR does not appear as a component to restore in the restore wizard. I'm able to backup and restore the MBR separately, so why can't I restore it from a full drive image? Thanks for any help you can give.
