    What software will image or clone the Windows partition if using VMWare or Parallels? I've read that SuperDuper and Carbon Copy won't do this.

    I won't be able to set up my new iMac until Christmas, so I'm planning in advance. I plan on installing Windows and several other pieces of proprietary software using Parallels. Once this is complete I want to image this in case of disaster.

    I used WinClone to back-up my Boot Camp partition. I've already used it once to resize the partition and then restore and it worked perfectly. I also use Parallels 5 with the Boot Camp partition.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, Winclone is free ($10 donation encouraged) and available at
