Backup of FAT32 partition?

I have a partition formatted as FAT32 (it's shared with a Linux installation).
But this partition is not included in the backup (started from the control panel).
What to do?

Hello markkusi and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could also give Macrium free and/or Paragon free a try. They both image individual partitions.
