    I just got a new aluminum macbook equipped with Snow Leopard. I want to use bootcamp to make a partition for Windows 7 but I don't know how to back it up. I currently use time machine to back up my Mac hard drive using a 250G external hard drive but I've recently heard and read that backing up a windows partition requires more software.

    I have heard about MacDrive/CrossOver, MacFUSE/NTFS-3G, Fusion/Parallels, Carbon Copy Cloner and even this post http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=785376 but I don't know what I need and what I don't.
    Thus my question is what do I need to get to back up my windows partition.

    Winclone is what most folks use.

    Wow, that sounds simple. I'll give it a try this weekend and see how it goes. Thanks.
