I want to back up my complete disk and restore it when required. I have tried acronis which does not support any of the apple usb slots so i cant restore. copycat does not let me select the boot camp to back that up. I dont want to have to do seperate backups for each partition. Is there a solution.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Unfortunately, you can't back up the Windows and the OS X volume with the same app if you want a reliable backup. You can try to back up both partitions with Time Machine if you want to, but you won't be able to restore the Windows backup.


    I recommend you to use Time Machine or Carbon Copy Cloner to back up your OS X volume, and use WinClone to back up the Windows volume. With this, you will save headaches when you want to restore files in Windows
