  • You're going to need a 3rd party backup program that does a complete disk sector by sector backup and can see the hidden partition. I believe that Acronis True Image should work.
    I have not used this program, but it may also be an option for you:
    Note that you posted to a forum dedicated to Windows Live OneCare, and it won't do what you want as it is a file backup program, not a partition/disk backup solution.
