    This includes a MAKEDISK.EXE program to create a bootable CD, you then
    run the program by booting the CD... it will read ALL hard disk info

    I use the Image for Linux and yes it can copy the hidden partitions. You can
    use it for Windows. You don't have to have Linux. They also have Image for
    DOS if you think you will be more comfortable with it. I have used both and
    also Image for Windows which was the link you provided. They all have a 30
    day free trial so try them and then decide if you want to buy.

    Double check on the free trial. I am not sure but at one time the free trial
    allowed to make an image but not let you restore it. Or maybe that was on
    one their other products BING that is a boot manager and can also make
    copies or partitions.

    good,no more fresh hand,U R so wise to backup a recovery partition,but I
    don't think it's necessary unless it's Disk C. where the PC's system
    is.If you really meet data lost or partition lost, just use a free
    software,here is one,'Easeus Partition Doctor'
    (http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm),good but free,just have a
    try,good luck to u.....
