How to clone hard drive hidden partition to another hard drive.
Click "Start" and opt for "Control Panel." Click the "Appearance and Personalization," link and choose "Folder
Options" and click "View" tab. Click the radio button under " Show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click "OK." This will allow you to see the hidden partition inside "My Computer."
Visit your HDD Manufacturer's website. Check if they offer system tools package that will allow you to repeat the partition. The procedure may vary depending on the manufacturer, therefore ensure to read the manual.
Download and install third party partition package like EASUS Partition Master, if your portable computer or HDD drive manufacturer doesn't offer system tools.
