Partitions look like this:
unamed partition - 20GB Healthy (Recovery partition) [so why cant I backup?? --> This is the partition that your machine is restored back to factory setting (optimally). If one were to fiddle around with it and commit caddywampus upon it, the option of recovering the machine back to factory condition will not exist. Or was the recovery partition created by you?
SYSTEM 99MB NTFS Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition) --> This is of course WinRE (Windows Recovery Environment)partition; also known as System Reserved. I believe one can burn the contents of this partition to a CD/DVD and call it a System Repair Disk Disk. There are handy when WinRE becomes corrupt or have become inopperable for any other reason.
C 85GB NTFS Healthy (Boot, PAge File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition) --> This partition - I would dare to guess - is the Windows drive
D 127.78 GB NTFS Healthy (Logical Drive) --> And here we have misc. programmes, media, and whatnot....(If you have programs installed to this partition and you format it, forget about running the the programs that were installed.
