Someone else can verifty this if they want. I downloaded HP Backup and recovery manager and installed it while fully shadowed and it installed and reported so upon reboot. I'm looking at my drive for a new hidden partition which it would install as a recovery partition yet I can't find a new drive letter however a popup stated upon reboot that it was successfully installed. WTF I am horrified I just screwed up my computer and now have to resize it with partition magic. Someone with a VM want to test this out by downloading the software while in shadow mode and see what it does to your machine? I'd like to have some confirmation. I'm shocked.
