Is SuperDuper! capable of cloning a hard drive from another operating system (e.g. Windows or Linux) to another drive even though it is not something that is readable in OS X?

I was considering cloning some drives to larger/faster drives and replacing them in the original computer if this works out.

I know there are some applications for other OSs, but I am short-handed on external hardware at the moment.

Thanks in advance!

No: we can only copy HFS+ volumes.

If you are running Leopard with VMWare, Parallels, or BootCamp, will it copy the PC side of things on your HFS+ formatted HDD? Thanks.

If, with VMWare and Parallels, the data is stored in an image on your regular HFS+ volume, yes. We will not copy a BootCamp partition.
