Have a look under Start/All Programs & see if there's an item called Recovery Manager - in there you should find an option called Recovery Disk Creator - it's available on many HP/Compaq systems so you may be in luck.

HP supply a recovery partition which can be accessed by repeatedly pressing F10 at startup. you can use the app to repair/recover or to do a factory restore.
you do not need to backup the recovery drive, so long as you do not delete/format it.

you can also create a system image from the windows backup and restore center.of the whole drive to an external drive. that way you always have a copy of the whole drive including the recovery partition, you should also create a recovery cd.

Type in backup,. It will be the top choice.
