Partitions with different formats

Post by mongoman » Tue Dec 04, 2007 2:37 pm


I have three partitions: sda1 for Windows XP formatted in ntfs, sda2 for Ubuntu formatted in ext3, and sda3 for my data stuff formatted in fat32.

The reason for this arrangement was both operating systems can read and write to the fat32 partition.

I want to backup sda1, (Windows XP) using sda3 (data partition).

Can I do this, or must they both be formatted the same?

Thank you
