    So when I got my optical drive fixed on my iMac, I was confirmed that my hard drive is failing. Something I had suspected for a while due to the flashing folder icon here and there.

    Anyways, I have a partitioned hard drive. About 100 gigs is dedicated to Windows, but that is besides the point.

    I have a Western Digital External Hard Drive for my Mac. Now I need to backup my computer, so I can get the hard drive replaced. But I am worried about losing things on my Boot Camp.

    My question is, is there ANY way to simultaneously back up both the windows and mac partition, or at least make it possible to back up both partitions on the same external?

    I am feeling probably not, but it is worth a shot.

    Use WinClone to clone the Windows partition and CCC to clone the OS X partition. They can be in the same HD as long as they both fit there
