    Good Backup Program


    Im looking for a system backup program that will copy my entire hardrive to another.

    I currently have a backup program but it only copyes files and directories under / but wont copy any of the mounted partitions.

    Does anybody know of a program that will completly backup everything on my hard drive and store it on my secondary hard drive?

    i am using Austrumi LiveCD. it has Partimage package and its very easy to create images and install those later on. Austrumi's size is around 50MB. its in Latvija Language but you can select English in its Menu.
