Ntfsclone gives you the choise, like dd, to use your favourite
compression.

Backup:

ntfsclone -s -o - <partition> | gzip > partition.img.gz

Restore:

gunzip partition.img.gz | ntfsclone -r -O <partition> -

The backup files usually are much smaller than the ones generated by
dd+gzip.

Good idea. Thanks.
