I bought a Toshiba laptop and it has 3 partitions, the first partition says 1.46 GB Healthy (Active recovery partition) 2. C: partition which says “Healthy (Boot, page file, crash dump, Primary partition) and the last partition say 15 GB Health (primary partition). I don't think the last partition means anything but I'm not sure how to back these up. It sounds like I need the first 2 partitions for a backup but I've never seen this before.

So I presume it has Windows 7 on it?

If so then backup the whole PC to a removable drive.

Yes if it's win7 the built in imaging software works really well and quite quickly, but the home premium version cannot image over a network where as all other versions can. So I use Active@ instead
