Klarsin; You might check out Clonezilla. I backed up my win drive before I did a clone of the drive to a new drive. It is done on a boot CD so you aren't on the actual drive you're backing up. I like it, you can copy a partition or a drive to another partition or drive, but you can also back up files. I backed up mine to an IDE HD. I forgot to mention that I used Clonezilla for the backup as well as for the cloning. There is a user guide for it which leads you step by step.
