Multiboot systems with two hidden partitions

Created: 23 Mar 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment

Hej All

I have a problem.
In our company we have a Notebook with two diferrent Win XPs as multiboot system.
One partition is for companydomain and the other is private.

At start you have a decision between this both partition. If you decised for a one, the other will be hidden.

I had installed BESR Desktop at it and would like to configuring the source partition for backup, but it isnt listed.
So I think the reason is, what both partition are c:\ and so BESR agent can not read this.

Could you help me?

Based on your configuration it is unlikely that BESR will work.  The other partition may be hidden to Windows, but BESR doesn't look to Windows to provide it a partition list so it may be able to see it.

One thing you can try is the very latest version of BESR which is 8.5.3.  It may allow you to backup the system.
