I am new to Mac - just bought a Mac Mini with Boot Camp installed. I also bought a Firewire 500GB and want to use it as a backup to Mac X and share drive for Mac X and WinXP. 1. If I want to backup (i.e. clone) my internal drive (i.e. Mac and WinXP), should I use Super Duper or Time Machine? 2. If something bad happens and I cannot even boot my Mac, how can I retore? 3. I have some ideas but not sure if this is correct - Create 3 partitions in my Firewire drive - 1st partition is cloned with Super Duper - 2nd partition is used for backup files using Time Machine - 3rd partition is FAT32 and used as common storage for Mac X and WinXP 4. For Super Duper, what is the difference between backup to a partition vs to a image file? Thanks a lot for helping.
