Windows 7: Windows Backup I/O Error 0x8078012D - can't image recovery partition

Windows Backup I/O Error 0x8078012D - can't image recovery partition

Hey Everyone,

I'm using a Sony VAIO VPCEA35FG Laptop, which has a hidden recovery partition of 13.51GB, a system reserved partition of 100MB, an 80GB Boot Drive (C: ) and a data drive of about 200GB (D: ).

I'm using Windows Backup and Restore to create a system image of everything apart from D:, and to back up the files in my user folder. It worked for a month or so (I did a factory restore to clean up before that), but then I got the following error:

"The operation failed due to a device error encountered with either the source or the destination. If the source or the destination volume is on a disk, run CHKDSK /R on the source or destination volume, and then retry the operation. (0x8078012D)

Additional Information:
The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. (0x8007045D)"

So I watched the backup from start to finish (rather boring), and the backup kept failing when an image of the 13.51GB recovery partition was being created.

I've tried:
Running chkdsk on the backup drive
Running chkdsk on C:
Formatting the backup drive
And none of these have worked. I can't run chkdsk on the hidden recovery partition, as it is hidden. What can I do?

Thanks,
Andrew.
