Re: [PLUG] Image-based partial backup?

As long as it restores the boot sector, filesystem structures, system
files, and so on such that if I run the restore against a blank hard
drive and reboot the system behaves exactly the same as it would have
on the first boot after the backup was performed, then I don't really
care how it is implemented.

I was looking at Mondo, but the docs say:
Please bear in mind that Mondo was written for Linux users. If Mondo
does not backup or restore your Windows system well, you might want to
consider reporting it to themondorescue mailing list

I wasn't sure how well-supported Windows actually is.  If it works
well in practice I'm more than happy to give it a shot, as it looks
fairly close to clonezilla (though it doesn't appear to support ssh,
so I'll need to set up an nfs mount for the backup directory which
isn't too big of a deal, though I guess that means that my backups are
exposed to anything on the LAN since nfs isn't secure).
