    I am sorry if this has been asked-I searched for it and didn't see anything like I am asking-though I am sure someone has.

    I just recently started using Time Machine after buying an new Airport Extreme and a large external USB HD (1 TB and APEBS for about $300 instead of $500 for a time capsule).

    Anyway I do love time machine, but I am wondering if it is backing up my windows partition? I can't see anything in the utility itself about this.

    Does TM back up windows? If so, has anyone successfully recovered a bootcamp partition using TM?

    It doesn't backup Windows partitions.

    Give "WinClone" a try. It creates bootable image backup files. They can be used to restore a Windows partition or move/resize one. Very good app - worth donating, if you find it useful.
