Complete backup by GUI

Hi @ All,
I'm proud to have installed and use Linux Ultimate 2.9 64 Bit (Ubuntu 10.10 Kernel), for me the best Linux OS, very comfortable nearly Windows.
Now after installing printer, Fritz-Fax, IM, etc. want backup the complete OS by GUI and know how to restore it in case I need.
No space problem afflict my machine because the OS is on a 175GB Ext4 Partition and the same space is on other ext4 partition. By the way, I would make an incremental backup and be able to choice the system date restore.

Thanks in advance and best regards.

P.s.: In case no GUI application is available please for indicating an script-application with step-by-step instructions. Thanks again

Clonezilla is by far one of the best cloning software I've ever used. . BTW, Linux is not nearly Windows. Linux > Windows.

While not completely gui, G4U is easy enough but I'd suggest you try kindofabuzz's suggestion of clonezilla, if you don't like ubuntu methods.
