Simple Backup & Restore

Post by TomT » Wed Jan 21, 2009 12:19 am

I'm just about to change from a Windows 2003 server to a Linux based server. (used at home for development and family mail server).

Currently I use Norton Ghost to image and restore the server. I create an image of the full SATA Hard Disk and split the resulting file across a couple of Dual Layer DVD's.

In the event of an issue I use the Boot CD from Ghost and restore the image from the DVD's back to the SATA Hard Disk and it works.

Can I do this with Partimage ?

Can I back up the entire disk, not just specific partitions ??

Any problem if I dual boot my Windows 2003 Server with Linux, would I be able to back up each OS individually or as one disk ?

Any benefit to using partimage or SystemRescueCD ??

Thanks for your help :)
