I would like to install Ubuntu in dual boot with my w XP. I know Acronis can't back up the partition that will be created by Ubuntu (yes build 9707 can I believe, but the dutch version of Acronis is always wayyyy behind in build number, I now have 9646). Am I right in thinking that: If I create a full back up of the whole drive before installing Ubuntu, I will be able to go back to windows only as it was. After installing Ubuntu, I can keep on backing up my C (windows) and D (data) partitions (ntfs) as I used to and restore these partitions if needed. I would not make a home partition for Ubuntu but only install program, data will be always written to the D partition (ntfs) which can be imaged. So worst case: I would only loose Ubuntu when returning to the whole drive back up situation (before Ubuntu was installed), and can always return to latest Windows & data situation by then putting back the latest images of these partitions separatly? Please correct me if I'm wrong! Thanks.
