I don't know precisely but you could probably do a 10 - 12 GB partition for OSX. You would have to look at the usage in disk utility and see what it is and just leave normal room for the OS to operate. That is what I would do. If you have a 1 to 2 GB of extra space you should be good.

OSX to work well you need around 5-10 GB free is recommended
Mountian Takes up around 9GB so around 12-15GB and you should be fine.

He can cut it pretty tight though because it sounds like he is just wanting to use Bootcamp. OSX is pretty much just for worst case scenarios.

Wait, are you saying using Bootcamp is bad? But I plans on having 28GB for OSX and the rest for Windows 7.

No, Bootcamp is not bad. I was figuring you were going to cut down OSX to as small as possible so you could have the most amount of room possible for your PC side. Bootcamp is great because it is running the Windows OS right on the hardware. Not as a virtual machine.

To backup OS X I recommend Carbon Copy. You can back up an exact copy bootable image of your hard drive to another source (ie usb hard drive). To boot: hit Option and select your hard drive.

I use time machine. Easier to use and pretty much fool proof (mostly) with weekly data backup using ChronoSync to a server in my house.

BTW, here is how I backup everything on my machine:

Boot drive is backed up using Time Machine to a separate partiton on my 2TB backup drive (otherwise it will eat your entire drive...)
All data that current resides on my RAID 0 (soon to replaced with 2TB RAID 1) is copied over to my 2TB drive using ChronSync every six hours
Every 7 days, ChronSync backs all data up to a folder on my home server, only changing what has been modified to lessen network loads.
Once a month a full image is created of my boot drive and all data from my data RAID is copied onto a 2 separate 3TB drives and stored inside of a safety deposit box at my local bank.
Any superduper important stuff is locked inside of a TruCrypt volume and updated to dropbox which requires 3 files (keys) plus a 32 digit randomly generated password of numbers, letters, and symbols to unlock. These key files and password are also stored in the same safety deposit box on 2 separate flash drives, along with copies of the same data that is dropbox. The file is encrypted in 256-AES. So, unless you have a super computer, you are not getting my financial data.

Additionally, in the same safety deposit box are hard copies of all tax returns and any other paperwork, driver license (expired, but still a valid form of ID) and passport (if driver license is not accepted for some reason), birth cert copy and SSN card copy. Digital copies are also on said flash drives.

On my laptop, I can set ChronoSync to sync any selected files or folders to a flash drive as soon as the volume is mounted. I use this for class work.

BTW, here is how I backup everything on my machine:

Boot drive is backed up using Time Machine to a separate partiton on my 2TB backup drive (otherwise it will eat your entire drive...)
All data that current resides on my RAID 0 (soon to replaced with 2TB RAID 1) is copied over to my 2TB drive using ChronSync every six hours
Every 7 days, ChronSync backs all data up to a folder on my home server, only changing what has been modified to lessen network loads.
Once a month a full image is created of my boot drive and all data from my data RAID is copied onto a 2 separate 3TB drives and stored inside of a safety deposit box at my local bank.
Any superduper important stuff is locked inside of a TruCrypt volume and updated to dropbox which requires 3 files (keys) plus a 32 digit randomly generated password of numbers, letters, and symbols to unlock. These key files and password are also stored in the same safety deposit box on 2 separate flash drives, along with copies of the same data that is dropbox. The file is encrypted in 256-AES. So, unless you have a super computer, you are not getting my financial data.

Additionally, in the same safety deposit box are hard copies of all tax returns and any other paperwork, driver license (expired, but still a valid form of ID) and passport (if driver license is not accepted for some reason), birth cert copy and SSN card copy. Digital copies are also on said flash drives.

On my laptop, I can set ChronoSync to sync any selected files or folders to a flash drive as soon as the volume is mounted. I use this for class work.

damm dude, thats LEGIT!

Unless I have some kind of nuclear winter, I will be fine with data.

I just use a 500GB drive to backup (via Time Machine) my MBA, but now it no longer recognized by my pc. Is this common?
