Am using partimage from the Parted Magic 3 boot CD. There are 3 HDD's.
I wanted to backup the Linux installation /dev/sdb (ext3) to Windows partition (NTFS) /dev/sdc/ . This I could do from the boot CD, with medium compression.
(/dev/sda/ has Windows and doesn't need to be backed up & so not included in this post).
Question is in 3 parts:
1) Does anyone have experience whether the image can be properly restored from the NTFS partition --> ext3 Linux partition?
And also if partimage will auto-unzip the backed-up image file?
2) Any successful experience with the opposite; i.e. Windows (NTFS) --> Linux (ext3) backup & restore?
3) Does Windows (NTFS) --> Windows (NTFS) image & restore work properly?
If you have a question about a file system (for example xfs, reiserfs, ...)
