Recovering dual systems

Just a question. On one of my computer I have XP and Win7 installed. In Win7 I made a system backup with the built in utilty with the option include a system image. So If I will delete the particions of the XP and the Win7 and then I make a system recover booting from the Win7 install disk, will I get back that two partitions with the XP and the Win7?

Hello Robert,

It depends on if you created a system image backup, and if you have selected both XP and Windows 7 to backup or just Windows 7 when creating it. Whatever you selected when you created the backup is what will be restored.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank You! Now I'm starting the backup and when it will be ready I will install the RC on it. If something goes wrong I hope that the backup will work fine otherwise I will have a lot of work with it
REP is on the way...

Are Unix systems more secure than Windows systems?
Lately, I've heard some people say that the Unix code is more secure than the Windows code and that the Windows code has many holes and bugs in it. Before, I always thought Unix systems (for example, Mac) were less likely to get infected by viruses only because they had a lower market share....
