I've got a solid backup/image of my new iMac drive on an external firewire drive, and I use SuperDuper! to do the drive copy. If I decide to dive in and give Boot Camp a shot, I'm assuming I'll then see two internal drives (the Macintosh and the Windows). Questions:
If I use SuperDuper! (or OS X Disk Utility), can I backup the entire drive (not just each partition), or will I need to backup/image one or the other?
If I want to wipe the Windows "C" drive and get back to a pre Boot Camp drive, would I then format/erase my internal Macintosh drive, and just restore the original image (made before boot camp)?
The bottom line question is: If it bombs, how easily can I get back to where I started via a disc restore?
