    I am running Windows Vista-64 off a partitioned drive through Fusion. On the "Mac" side of the drive is where I store all my files (iTunes, videos, Photoshop, Autocad........)

    Will Time Machine backup my Autocad files? I know that it won't backup files from the actual Windows partition, but will it backup Windows files (when I make changes to them) that are stored on the Mac side?

    I would really love to have an automated backup of my .dwg Autocad files.............

    Thanks for any help.

    does anyone know? i'm really curious and don't want to run out and get a new hard drive just to try it out if it doesn't work.

    Yes, as long as the files are located on the Mac side Time Machine will back them up regardless of whether they're meant to be opened in a Windows program or not.
