Hi Kenneth,

As far as I know it doesn't. You need to look at Symantec System Recovery Linux Edition to cater for this.

There is a separate forum too:

Thanks!

Yes, SSR can do this but be aware that you cannot restore to different hardware (aka 'Restore Anyware'). This feature is currently not supported.
