    I have a Bootcamp partition running Linux and I'm wondering if Time Machine backs it up as well? I ask because I'm installing a new HD soon and want to know if I'll lose my Linux set up?

    It does not back up non-mac disks. I recommend Carbon Copy Cloner to make a DMG of the Linux drive which can then be imaged to the new drive.

    I have SuperDuper from pre-Time Machine days, so I guess I'll use that. Thanks.

    For anyone interested, this program, WinClone will make a DMG of a non Mac partition. You can also use it to restore from that image apparently.

    winclone 1.6.6

    Where can i get winclone 1.6.6 as i am running Mac OS 1.4.
    Currently all the sites are for download of winclone 2.0.9 but cannot run on Mac OS 1.4. it's only for Mac OS 1.5 & above.

    Seems like all download sites are making only winclone 2.0.9 available but not the older winclone 1.6.6. Can you please tell me where can i download winclone 1.6.6
