My 320GB internal SATA has XP and Vista in Windows dual boot configuration, and three other data partitions, some quite heavily populated with TV recordings and the like. Only XP occupies a primary partition, the rest (including Vista) are in an extended logical partition. Using ATI11 I regularly back up the two OS partitions to a matching eSATA drive but I never back up the data partitions. I use WinRar for that. It's faaaast! From a number of threads here I am getting the impression that if I needed to replace my disk I would need a whole disk image for the restore, and that simply restoring XP on its primary partition, followed by Vista on its logical partition would not succeed. I really hope this is not so, but is it?
