Hi folks I'm looking to download a free image backup program to backup my whole C drive(including OS).I'm going to be backing up the image to a western digital external drive but the internal drive in my computer is a maxtor drive.I'm just wondering which is the correct one to download and if anyone can give a link please?Thank you.

Acronis WD Edition

Macrium Reflect Free

Easeus Todo Backup

I mostly use Macrium or Easeus. Alternate images.

Sorry you'll have to Google for downloads.

Don't forget to make their respective boot CD/DVDs

It's for XP pro,so would Macrium be my best bet?I've really no experience at all when it comes to cloning my drive.I've always just backed my documents up but never actually cloned my drive or my OS.It says there's a linux rescue CD with Macrium.Is this what I would use to boot back to windows incase of failure?If anyone could tell me how to be able to boot up windows xp again from the clone if it failed that would be much appreciated.Thanks folks!
