For now, you can make the DNG read-only in the operating system, which will force the generation of sidecars. Then you can archive the sidecars.
A more elegant solution is coming.
When I've tried making DNG files read-only in the past the metadata has not all ended up in the sidecar. I also had a ".BridgeLabelsAndRatings" file created in the directory that held label and rating information that didn't seem to be replicated into the sidecar.
I also had some issues with portrait-orientation images. When I applied a rating or label the fact that the image should be rotated to portrait seemed to get lost.
This is with Bridge CS3.
mpbailey, I hear you but unfortunately there's not nearly enough information in your post for us to investigate this. You'll have to post a raw file and a description of exactly what's not being saved in there for us to understand what the problem is, assuming there is one.
