    Hard Drive Cloning

    I want to keep a back-up of everything on my 2 hard drives onto a large external or similar, whats the best way to do this? I know Norton Ghost does it, but i'd rather not use norton. Are there any free options which are as good, if not better?

    any help would be much appreciated.

    cheers

    loads of free imaging software. try drive-image.com/ free 15 day fully functional trial.

    you can try G4U:
    feyrer.de/g4u/
    its os independant and works from livecd

    otherwise if you want an automated backup which keeps the data updated at all times, you can try:
    bacula.org/en/

    Casper looks like the one, i presume i can partition a 500gb into two, and then clone 2 seperate 250gb HDs onto each partition?

    Norton ghost 14 is very good, low on resorces and installs in boot setup, restore is a doddle as its run by linux. Ive got it for £25 inc 25% discount voucher and quidco.
