Most reccomend Acronis True Image on here. Found this freebie but haven't used it; click here

For something as important as a backup, ensure that the software you use for it is reliable. Acronis is very well known and is reliable when used properly. Some others may not be.

If you have a Seagate or Maxtor hard drive (or you buy/have a Seagate/Maxtor backup drive), check out:

This is a free version of Acronis (version 10 I supports Vista).
