    Can I use UB tools to create windows 7 recovery disk?

    I have a new PC from Dell: one disk, parted says:

    Code:
    1049K -- 106M     primary     fat16       flag diag    used 10M
    106N  --  15G     primary      ntfs       flag boot    used  5G
    rest of disk      primary      ntfs       no flag      used 17G

    Dell provide a process to make a recovery disk. This ran with no
    visible error, but there seems to be no way to find out if the
    recovery disk will work until the day when I have to use it for
    real.

    Please is there a procedure to boot from a live CD and use Ubuntu
    programs to make backups? I understand that if you simply mount
    these partitions and use tar to backup, then after restoring, the
    restored disk is not bootable.

    Thank you.

    You might have a look at Clonezilla live: http://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live.php
