Frist of all, I just want to say thank you all for all the help that I got so far to get my new macbook air to function the way I want. Since I'm still a rookie in mac os, I need to create an image of my air just in case it crashes and I need to restore it. Beside time machine, what do you guys recommend that I use? :apple:

Thanks for all the quick replies. From the help of you guys, I was able to import the boot camp partition to fusion so I'm no longer have a boot camp partition. I'll give CCC a try.

Time Machine is awesome and comes free with your mac! Just grab a drive that has enough to back up your system, plug it in and start backing up!

Because as far as I have experienced, CCC doesn't backup from NTFS or FAT32 sources, though it can clone to an exFAT volume.
I'm just going by this: Can CCC back up my BootCamp (Windows) partition?
CCC can back up the contents of the Boot Camp partition, but it cannot make a bootable clone of the partition. If your goal is to back up your user data on the Boot Camp partition, CCC will meet your needs.
This may also help: Backing up to/from network volumes and other non-HFS volumes
Apparently it may have some limitations. On that page, see "Backing up the contents of an NTFS volume".
