Ghost for Linux - NTFS support

Does anybody know can Ghost For Linux backup/restore NTFS and FAT32 partitions?

Is there any other bootable tool that can create and restore images of partitions with NTFS and FAT32?

Thanks in advance!

For FAT32, definitely, for NTFS, yes but I suggest reading the sourceforge forum about NTFS support....

Although I highly suggest getting RIPLinuX (Recovery Is Possible) which is a rescue disk and has a whole host of useful tools for saving, restoring, rescuing, etc., whole drives or partitions.......It has partimage for imaging partitions, gParted partition GUI, the current ntfs-3g support for reading and writing to NTFS partitions, and also has the ntfsprogs utils which has ntfsclone, a safe cloning tool for making backup images of NTFS......While it comes as an iso, it can be installed to a pendrive (128MB size is more than sufficient, even for the X windows version) for easy carrying, or the iso can be burned to a mini-cd (8 cm) disc for easy carrying as well.....

Get the X version, RIPLinuX (uppercase X), which is only a ~75MB iso........This project is constantly maintained and updated with the latest tools.........


PS: Here's a listing of the files included in the current X version (2.9 as of this writing): RIPLinuX-2.9.contents.txt.......
