If you have a Seagate or Maxtor hard drive you can download Seagate DiscWizard (SDW).
It's a stripped down version of Acronis true Image (ATI) 10 (although i can't see what you are missing with SDW vs ATI) which you can use to clone your Hard Drive and make backup images (complete disk backups)
1. License Grant. Licensor grants to Licensee a worldwide, nonexclusive, nontransferable, royalty free license to use the DiscWizard software (the “Software”) with Seagate and Maxtor branded disc drives only.
I bought and paid for ATI10 a while back and it's a lifesaver, but if you can get it for free then do so....
