I have an 11,3 i7 iMac, from around 2010. I want to upgrade to Mavericks and do a clean install of both Mavericks and Windows 7 in Boot Camp - reformat the internal HD and repartition.
I need a solution for backing up my Windows user files - documents, some apps if possible - but I don't need an actual image of my old partition. I did pick up a copy of Winclone and I'm running it, but the backup process is incredibly slow. Check out these timestamps!
26-03-14 02:37:28 Winclone 53.51 percent completed 26-03-14 03:06:37 Winclone 54.52 percent completed 26-03-14 03:37:34 Winclone 55.53 percent completed 26-03-14 04:13:04 Winclone 56.54 percent completed 26-03-14 04:46:15 Winclone 57.55 percent completed
Is there any alternative to Winclone (I refuse to believe that imaging a 250GB partition requires a fifty-hour period) and is there some way I could simply back up my Windows files instead of the whole partition? I know the two filesystems are different, so it cannot be as simple as simply dragging the files from the Boot Camp partition to my external 3TB Seagate?
