I would like to backup a Windows installation with the Linux version of Savepart. The problem is that the destination would be a partition used by the same Windows, as NTFS data partition:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/sda4,hda,w', 'phy:/dev/sda2,hdb,w', 'phy:/dev/scd0,hdc:cdrom,r' ]

Source (system):sda4
The problem is me that in this scenario, sda2 now isn't a regular NTFS partition, because Windows knows it as an HDD, so:
fdisk -l /dev/sda2

/dev/sda2 disk: 20.0 GB, 20003880960 byte

255 head, 63 sector, 2432 cylinder
Unit: cylinders 16065 * 512 = 8225280 byte
Disk id: 0x0aa13b29

 Device Start  Begin  End  Blocks ID System
/dev/sda2p1ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ 1ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ 2432ÂÂÂ 19535008+Â 42Â SFS

My question is, how can I mount sdap2?
mount /dev/sda2p1 /mnt/dest
mount: you must give file system type first

mount -t ntfs /dev/sda2p1 /mnt/dest
mount: the /dev/sda2p1 special device does not exist

(sda4p1 seems to be a regular NTFS partition, but the mount result is the same)
The messages may not 100% correct, because I translated them from hungarian.
