Here are two opinions I have come across on the subject.

1. Depending on the program I use I may not be able to mount and browse the linux partition, although I am able to restore it.

So I am looking for an answer from some one who has done this and who can tell me, using which backup program will enable me to mount and browse both partitions as well as restore the complete setup when I need to.

2. It is preferable to perform backup using a boot media since a backup software running under windows may not see the linux partitions and do sector by sector backups of linux partitions which will be slow and backup file will be large. A live boot media based on linux is better since it will see both windows and linux partitions.

Here also I am looking for opinions about this and what programs are suitable. I don't understand how to do this.
