Hey guys, using Bootcamp on my macbook pro I now have a windows 7 partition going. Question: Is there any reason why I couldn't utilize my windows home server to back it up? There's no real magic to Bootcamp - I think it just creates a partition of any size you choose so that you can install windows on it. (or linux, whatever) Is anyone doing this?

I guess the question isn't so much CAN it back it up, because I'm sure it can, the question really is, can it be restored? I can't think of a reason (yet) why it couldn't, but hopefully someone here might have more knowledge on the subject than me. Thanks!
