I thought the OP was talking about his own "Recovery" partition.
I have made an image of the Factory recovery partition using Macrium in case I needed to reimage a new HDD and wanted to include the original factory recovery partition. (MS imaging won't do this).
I'm not sure if the factory partition could be recovered but anyway how could making an image affect it?
