hi... i am interested in purchasing SuperDuper, but want to make sure it will do what i need, first.

i have a macbook running parallels VM with WinXP. yesterday i had a problem booting into XP (BSOD/reboot loop with an error message : unmountable_boot_volume) and i'm still not able to get in. i have tried to use a few fixes, but to no avail. currently i am running another fix, but it's been running for hours and i'm not sure that is going to work either.

my main concern is my data on the VM hdd. i want to know if i were to use SD would i be able to few my files on a ext. HDD, or would i have to open the clone in another VM on another machine? also, would I have the same boot issues i am having now when i try to access the files?

i basically just want to know if i will be able to access individual files from the ext. HDD.

thanks in advance.

You can certainly access individual files, but your VM is likely in one big image file, and that's what'll be on the destination...
