Really depends on what you want here

Norton's Ghost or Acronis True Image are both the top commercial offerings that most people use and Clonzilla is the most widely used free offering.

Another tech friend of mine turned me on to Acronis a couple of years ago and I have never looked back. Easy to use and FAST!! I've re-imaged my partitions on more than a half a dozen occasions without fail. I've also used the boot CD (optional) to get the image to load and worked perfectly. I only take a manual snapshots of my system images every couple few months but there is a customizable "automatic" interval setting.

Of course i'm always wondering about freeware and now that I know about clonezilla, might just have to test it.

If you have one of these hard drive brands you can download a free brand-specific version of Acronis from the manufacturers's website.

I've used the free and pro versions for backups. The restores from each have worked for both crashes and hard drive upgrades.
