    Dual Boot Backup and Restore


    Hi
    Im not !00% sure or confident enough to try and back up my dual boot Win10 and Win7 on the same SSD Drive with 4 partitions.

    Do I have to backup system reserved partition? can I backup leaving rollback working dual boot or should it be removed then reinstall when both operating systems are restored?

    Thanks
    Smokes


    Is there any options to add a second operating system\PC to the bottom of the page?

    If it were me, I would use Macrium Reflect Free and just make an image of the entire SSD:

    Thanks for the reply, Do I have to uninstall Rollback RX from both operating systems every time I want to a full backup or differential?

    NO - With Macruim your making a point in time image of the entire SSD, all partitions. MR does not care what Rollback RX is doing. You can also perform a Differential backup to match against the full backup made previously. In case of a disaster (Hardware or software caused), boot from the MR recovery PE disk (made initially after install of MR) and you can then recover/restore one or all partitions from the image of your SSD.
