Hi,

I have a dual boot Windows 10 / Ubuntu system. I have Windows installed one drive C: a second data NTFS parition on Drive D: the second hard drive. for the remaning logical drives on that disk I have Ubuntu. Sorry I cant remember the exact term.

Anyway I know with clozilla I can backup partitions and disks. My question is there a way I can backup just the MBR and Grub config. So I can keep my windows and ubuntu backups seperate. Or is the only way to get the Grub info to backup the C: partition / drive.

Also where is the Grub config stored?

Thanks,

Ward
