    Hey guys, need help with this.

    My main drive is a 250GB drive which has 2 partitions (1 OSX Leopard and 1 Bootcamp w/ Windows XP Pro SP2).

    What I want to know is how can I back this up to an external drive (or even internal) and if I ever need to restore it, I want it to be restored to the way it was (with 2 partitions). So if I lose the main drive, I would want to reestore the computer back to the way it was with the 2 partitions intact (and both bootable).

    Is this possible? If there is such an application, I am willing to buy it...I just need to know if this is possible.

    Also if I back it up to an external drive, how would I boot it so that I can restore the image?

    Thanks!
