Does Rescue & Recovery recover a dual-booting hard drive?

Hi

 

I am using a T400. I have both Windows and Linux installed in my laptop. Does anybody know if Rescue and Recovery can backup and recover my entire hard drive, or just the windows partition?

 

Thanks!

Re: Does Rescue & Recovery recover a dual-booting hard drive?

You seem like an expert. Just to clarify you stated "to the default no. of partitions." What do you mean? 1) the default parition? Example I am dual booting Vista 32 and W7 64. Will recover both? Or 2) do you mean the Vista parition? Vista was installed first.

Default partition: The one  which came with your system.(If vista came with your system)

Re: Does Rescue & Recovery recover a dual-booting hard drive?

So what you are saying is the Backup and Restore will do so only for the Vista (defailt) and the W7 on the other parition wont be able to use Backup and Restore? Yes or No?

 

Also the Backup and Restore seems to want to back up to the non Vista parition. Tried it and seems like that is what it wanted to do but there was not sufficient space. Is this normal? Yes or No?

This place seems like a ghostown. Does Lenovo even statt the board with help? You figure people pay for a warranty  and they expect support. Seems like Gateway nowadays.

This is a user-to-user help community, moderated by volunteers like me. Although employees do fly by from time to time, it is not a monitored Lenovo support channel. For warranty support in the US call 1-800-426-7378 or submit a support request by clicking on "Submit a request" on most pages of the Lenovo Support & downloads site.
