system-backup with dual-boot

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,



I´ve got a question concerning system backup of a dual-boot system.


Currently I´ve got WIN 8.1 home (64bit) installed on my computer. I´m thinking of changing that to a dual-boot system (WIN 8.1 + Ubuntu) on the same disk (HD). On different partitions of course.


Now I´m looking for a backup programme capable of creating system backups in such a way that my two operating systems would be saved and could easily be restored to the original state of my disk (WIN 8.1 + Ubuntu).

Plus that backup programme should be freeware if possible.


I found Paragon Backup & Recovery 14 Free Edition and supported File Systems are:


NTFS (v1.2, v3.0, v3.1)
Linux Ext2FS
Linux Ext3FS
Linux Ext4FS
Linux Swap
Limited read/write access to Apple HFS+ partitions
Other file systems (in the sector-by-sector mode)

My question now is: would that be the right programme for my purposes or does anyone know a backup programme that meets my demands?


In the meantime I also found an article "Freeware to Backup Windows 7 and Ubuntu Dual Boot System" which promotes Aomei Bachupper Free. There´s also a reference to WIN 8.1 + Ubuntu.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Rosika. :)

You have found two good programs.

I can only suggest you other (free) softwares, but I don't know if they'll fit your needs:

Hi Xilo,


so nice to hear from you again. I hope you´re well and everything is fine for you.


Thanks for your reply and thanks also for the links you provided.

I´m going to look into them and hopefully there will be backup programmes suitable for my purposes amongst them.



I wish you a happy new year with much success and of course health.
