    When I try to create a partition for bootcamp Mac OS X tells me it cannot be created unless I format my disk and restore the contents through Time Machine. (Because of unmoveable files)

    I'm ready to do so but will everything be exactly as I left? Including mail-servers in Outlook and so on?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Yes in theory. I had to type in a couple of password that it seemed to of forgot, but apart from that it was simple.

    Depends on your settings, but yes, it should be an exact image.

    Yes, unless you purposefully excluded certain folders from backup.

    Yes, but you likely won't be able to continue TM backups after the restore. You will have to delete your old backups and start again from scratch.
