    TM can backup both drives for you, just keep a clone of the boot drive available (refresh it now and again) for disasters, hard drive replacements etc.

    And how does TM select 2 drives at one time to back-up?

    TM selects all drives, you can exclude one or both if you choose. Look in TM preferences to check your exclusions.

    No, you will need to use Windows tools to backup Windows.

    If it were disk that I was cloning, I would start over again.

     

    Why take chances with something like that?

     

    I mean the clone is for disaster recovery, why compound it with another disaster.

    Okay, so **** happens

     

    I accidently pulled out my power cable and because I didn't noticed my MBP was down for a very little while.

     

    Anyway, I powered him up, again, and my clone copy isn't complete yet, I can see it on the size.

     

    Is it possible to only copy the other files who aren't copied yet, or do I have to start over again?

    Start the clone again from the beginning, do not disturb this process. (Use the partition you made)  The 2nd clone will go faster because some files are already on the clone, starting it over will ensure that none are missed.

    So just repeat the process of cloning with CCC only?

     

    I don't have to repartition my Macintosh HD again?

    Just repeat the cloning.

    Yes.  Reboot into the internal drive.  Test it to your satisfaction before calling it "complete".

    I see replies in my email but no posts yet, so just run from the internal for a while until you are sure all is well. Keep the clone for when disaster occurs. Take the time to read the Boot Camp documentation:

    Press the button for the instructions.
