Thread: Anyone using one-button backup from Seagate/ Maxtor (backup image bootable?)

  1. #1

    Default Anyone using one-button backup from Seagate/ Maxtor (backup image bootable?)

    Mmm, read from advertisment that Seagate and Maxtor offered easy to
    use "one-button" backup for new comp users.

    Anyone uses it a backup for your current drive.

    I.e. if u have only one physical drive and partition to two logical drives
    1. OS/application/ bootable
    2. Data

    Q1. Can the one-button backup both partitions?
    Q2. Is the backup image bootable
    I.e. if old_drive = A
    Backup = B

    If A dies, I promote B to bootable drive.
    Can I just use B to boot up, and continue using?
    I.e. buy a new one-button backup hdd = C for backup

    TIA.

    Last time I ask the sales person,he commented that the drive only back up the data and NOT the OS as one unreadable file image!!! The compression ratio is about 3:2 i think, cant really recall...

    Thats all I know. Oh yea one more thing, the Maxtor only give 1 yr warranty, PERIOD!!
