From what I read and experienced that is the easiest is Clonezilla. I haven't tried a back up yet but as for making a copy of the HDD its easy. There are many guides on clonezilla just google it.

Clonecopies are not necessary with linux. You want a rsync script like draksync, as an example.
It manages as many generations of backup files as you want. And, it duplicates unchanged files as hardlinks saving diskspace.
