    Hello,
    I have very little knowledge about True Image, some help would be appreciated.
    If I understand correctly, it is possible to use True Image with dual boot. So the questions arising are:

    If I backup Windows partitions, can I also backup MBR?
    If I backup MBR, is the GRUB loader also backed up? I have installed GRUB by default (overwritten the original Windows MBR). If I were to backup Windows and restore, would the dual boot still be preserved afterwards?
    Can True Image recognize / backup efs / swap partitions?

    Mrk
