They can do either or both.

If you want to be able to access and run the same install of windows in a VM as you run in bootcamp both Fusion and Parallels can do that.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post
