    Is there away that I can backup my entire HDD from my computer? I have an 80Gig with XP installed and a blank 500Gig HDD. I was wondering if there was a way I can keep the entire filesystem and whatnot.

    If that's not good, I also have a 250Gig HDD with Vista Ultimate, I wonder if I can back it up...

    There are multiple backup tools but I would warn you that windows checks serials on components and if you change too many then you can end up having to reinstall windows.

    Try some of these as they cover most of the options available:

    I use Genie Backup Manager. Retains the folder hierarchy perfectly, and skips over in-use system files without missing a beat.
