Heard of Norton Ghost and Symantec Ghost?? If you have not.. then don't get fright :D , they are just the leading backup creating tools. They can help you duplicate your hard drive. Since this is an open source blog definitely i am not going to give you download links of those commercial packages, but i have an open source solution for this.

Clonezilla was inspired by these packages and forms an Open source clone system solution. Clonezilla comes with unicasting and multicasting features!! Clonzilla saves and restores only used space in your hard disk. Hence its a lot efficient.

File systems supported by clonezilla
ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs of GNU/Linux
FAT and NTFS of Windows
HFS+ of Mac OS
