Yes, but that does not get quite to the bare metal back up a Winders box does while it's running. The fact that recoverability is at best questionable is of no matter.

The problem we run into with these discussions is comparing two completely different architectures with each other. Folks want the good part of a old file based technology (Windows) they spend serious money supporting to avoid things we just take for granted on IBM i. So the best route is to exit stage left, and not bother with the discussion since there is no way to convince the Windows aficionado's that Windows technology is inferior to start with, therefore not comparable.
