Since GRUB is unlikely to really have anything to do with this backup problem and reporter didn't answer to request for more details, closing the bug.

Hm, I don't see how GRUB could influence it. How do you make backup? What is in your grub.cfg?

I have a recurent problem with Grub 2 (Mint 14) and Windows 7 Professional backup.

When I boot win 7 pro by grub 2, it is impossible for my to make a backup from win 7, I have systematically crach error.

If I want to obtain a succes on my backup, I must to boot win 7 pro directly from its partition, without boot from grub 2.

It's not a real problem on my workstation, than It's possible for my to boot on a another disk, but on my laptop on dual boot win 7/mint 14, it's a real problem... than it's impossible for my to choice a another boot disk.

Tks for your developpements.
