Macrium Reflect Backup and Hard Disk Imaging for Windows 7, Vista, XP and Server 2003/2008


I just installed Linux Mint as a duel boot and I would like to know if I can use Macrium Reflect to create an image for the entire thing. Is that possible?

by entire thing I mean I want to be able to make one image for my entire duel boot so I can restore both at any time

Mmm. Interesting question. I don't see why not.

Is the Linux partition available for selection when you first open Macrium?

I think that should work. I image my Ubuntu with free Macrium, but that is in a virtual partition.
