    In my experience Winclone in a good aplication but not a perfect app. Winclone can not be used to make a XP migration to another Mac with a superior memory bus than the original Mac.:apple:

    Or maybe the software running in Windows, such as Norton Ghost? My dad uses it in XP to create a copy of partition and praises it.

    Would this work ? You can create the Windows partition backup while you have windows running but to restore it you have to boot from the Norton Ghost boot cd. Would this also work with a Mac with bootcamp ??

    Thanks,

    I'm pretty sure that Ghost would work. I think the only way it wouldn't work is with a Virtual Machine, which Bootcamp is not.

    There is also a free alternative for Norton Ghost -- HDClone, but I haven't tried it. As I said earlier, my dad use Ghost for years and it works. I have no idea if it will work in OSX.
