    i heard winclone is ideal to backup bootcamp partition.
    i am currently running Mac OS X 1.4 tiger.
    winclone 2.x runs only on Mac OS 1.5 & above (leopard)
    winclone 1.6.6 runs on Mac OS X 1.4 & below (tiger)

    Currently , all the download site that i go are making winclone 2.0.9 available for download only.

    i don't seems to be able to find a dowload site for the older winclone 1.6.6 version anymore.

    Please anyone can help, which site can i download winclone 1.6.6 (the older version) as this version can run on tiger. But the newest version runs only on leopard

    you have to have leopard cause the only still supported bootcamp requires 10.5

    Yes, i am still using the old bootcamp for tiger. As the new bootcamp is available & supported on leopard only.
    Having said that, however, my tiger with bootcamp XP is running fine...even without official support... it does not expire or cause any misbehavoir.
    The only thing is , it may be hard to get old sofware that support this older tiger.
    Anybody know maybe there is somewhere where winclone 1.6.6 is still made available for download??

    I've been searching everywhere and I can't find it. Not a torrent, not a mirror. Nothing. At this point it would be easier to upgrade to Leopard.

    I don't know why the developer is being such a jerk about it. In the FAQ it says "any emails asking about this will probably get a link to this FAQ in return" and also says that because licensing on Boot Camp beta for Tiger has expired, apparently his application should no longer support it.

    All he has to do is post a link to 1.6.6 and everything will be fine, he's policing territories that are not his responsibility. Maybe you want to use Winclone to backup before you upgrade to Leopard, thus getting Boot Camp licensing back? How does he know and why does he care either way?

    The other solution would be to use dd to make a disk image of your Windows partition, but unfortunately I've used that method and the result is an unbootable Windows partition that you have to fix with your Windows disk which may be complicated.
