    Hi all,
    I just bought a new HD for my MBP. However I would like a backup of the data on the boot camp partition before it gets replaced (on fri.). Does anyone know of a good tool to back up Windows? I have windows 7. It is barely bootable (there is only 13 mb left free) so if it can be a native Mac app it would be better.
    I have heard of WinClone, anyone had any luck with that?
    Also is there any easy way to enlarge the boot camp partition when before of after it has been restored on the new HD?
    Specs are: original :apple: mbp 15", osx 10.6.3 and Windows 7 boot camped.
    Let me know if you need any more info.

    Just copy the data in mac OS x using finder. It will run at the full speed the external disk is capable of. This will backup the data, but you will need to reinstall windows and all the software.
