    Restoring the primary partition of a multi-partition drive

    Is it possible to restore a boot partition image backup on a physical disk without loosing data on the logical partition? If such an operation is possible is there a free utility for Windows 7 with that capability.

    I have been imaging my Win 7 boot partition with the free version of Easeus ToDo Backup however the restore operation will wipe all other partitions. I would like to be able to do a boot partition restore without backing up data.

    EASEUS Todo Backup free Yes you can when you do backup only select boot partition not full disk and obviously select and restore to boot partition. Also give your partitions names so you don't get mixed up. I backup all my partitions separately.

    I would like to pose my initial question again. Is there a free imaging utility that can restore a boot partition without damaging files on the logical partition?

    Thanks for the reply Stasio but I probably phrased my question poorly. I am looking for a free partition imaging application which will backup and restore the primary OS partition while preserving files on the adjacent logical partition.
