I have one 160GB and one 1TB hard drive.

On the 160GB drive I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed on the C: drive. On drive D: I have some programs installed.

I want to make a complete backup of both the drive (save disk image) to the second hard disk (1TB) so that if anything happens like a virus attack I can restore both Windows and Ubuntu 10.04 with the programs installed.

I want to know how to backup and restore this configuration without any issues, because I have never made a backup of the system drive before.

Are there are reliable freeware solutions available?
