Default making a backup on a hidden partition

making a backup on a hidden partition

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

hello....i use to have a dell system restore backup on a hidden partition for my backup to restore to orginal factory settings from dell. i have deleted the hidden partition...and now i want to make my own backup on a hidden partition... so what i want to do...is reformat my drive and reinstall windows and drivers..and make a one-time backup(on a hidden partition) so i can restore back to that state anytime- so i don't have to reinstall windows and my drivers again. and also i would like it to be somewhat like dells sytem resotre(a one time backup, and something that doesn't boot up with my computer, like norton goback.) thanks in advanced
