Since win 8 there are 64 and 32 versions which both have extra hidden partitions.
The built in backup does not work so well with them since you need to use the advanced method because your mss treats the hidden partition as another drive.
For free you can use easeus todo backup.
It allows you to create a emergency boot dvd to use your backups and all you need to do is create a folder to place them in.
Now it is not a readable backup so you could just have the mss to still create backups so you can download just data files and use easus to recover from. But you can also in addition to a drive backup you can elect to backup folders you select that are readable.
Try it at:

Hi Ruben,

Couple of questions on your above post.

What is the advance backup method you are referring to?

Your saying to use Easus to backup the terminal with a newer OS (due to the hidden partition) and if you need to restore that same terminal, use the Easus emergency boot DVD to pull the backups from the MSS with?

I understand the part about the MSS terminal backups having unreadable backup images stored in the image file(s) (with the exception that you can cherry pick files from the backups if you have terminal access to the backup image), but could you restate your thought? I'm a bit confused with what you are suggesting.
