    All,

    I am going to upgrade my MBP internal drive, so I was wondering if you could suggest a tool that will allow me to clone my XP partition and restore it so I wouldn't have to reconfigure my Windows install? Would programs such as Ghost work here? Ideally, one that worked from the OS X side would be best, but I can deal with boot CDs. I am using NTFS and prefer to keep it that way. The only thing that would change is the partition sizes. I want to go from 50/30 to 80/80.

    I am definitely interested in feedback from those who have actually tried this on their Intel Mac(s).

    Thanks.

    Use this to create image

    what I use is True Image.
    it's actually a very power software.
    and pretty easy to use.
    You can download the fully functional demo from

    try it out, you'll love it.
    Let me know if you need any help with it.

    Norton Ghost is also nice. That is what I use.

    You use this on your Intel mac? Everything I have read so far, people are unable to restore from backup...what workarounds, if any, did you use?
