I want to know whether there is a software that I can use to create a hidden drive that contains the backup of the whole c:. The hidden drive can be used to recover the C: later.

I knew most of the laptop now uses this way to recover the machine to factory status.

Thank you

Are you looking for a roll your own solution or a package?

Acronis True Image software appears to do what you want.

You could also install a boot manager like GRUB and roll your own backup/recovery using a minimal Linux install and dd.
