If you want to back up the Windows partition from Linux, you need to do

feed that through bzip to compress it, if space is an issue.

I was very happy using ntfsclone from the ntfsprogs package for backing up and cloning ntfs file systems, including migration to other disks. Migration to other disks eventually involves updating of the drive geometry parameters if the destination disk has a different layout. Use testdisk for this. Very recommended!
