when ntfsclone comes across an OEM 'recovery' partition that has a partition ID of 27 it skips over it, thinking it's not NTFS. the partition is indeed NTFS-based, the ID is simply set differently so it is hidden when inside Windows.

sfdisk defines this partition type as "unknown."

    "partition ID of 27" -> Do you know the device name? Is it's /dev/sda27? Or?
    And why you think it's something to do with ntfsclone? By default Clonezilla uses partclone to save NTFS partition.
