    I am using Boot Camp and Parallels and I just realized that the Boot Camp partition is not being backed up with Time Machine. It doesn't look like there is any way to include the Boot Camp partition in the backup scheme . Is this because it is formatted FAT32? What is a good alternative to back up both my Mac and Boot Camp drives? I am running Quickbooks, Quicken and MS Office on the Boot camp partition and have no problems using it - it's just the backup issue. I am currently backing up QB & Quicken with a USB Flash Drive.
    Thanks

    You can't do them both at the same time as far as I know unless something has changed

    You will need to use WinClone to clone your Boot Camp partition separately

    It is free

    Thanks for the info. I looked at Winclone and checked some other threads about it. It looked a little daunting. I realized that I have so little data in my Boot Camp that I can backup everything with a USB Flash Drive - a little one at that! Thanks again.

    Winclone works great, for me!

    Best of luck,
