Backup windows from linux

ntfsclone - to copy/backup to, included on ubuntu live/install CD. Tar doesn't seem to work very well.

This is for moving windows to a larger disk, or making a snapshot to restore later.

I got a new netbook, removed all the garbage, installed my stuff ( chrome, firefox, etc ), saved the 'restore point' and installed ubuntu. I only use windows for netflix and occasional testing - so I don't want to deal with any windows-specific backup program or to have to reinstall.
