    Hello,

    I am looking for a free or open-source software that can backup, image and restore hard drives that multiboot Windows 7, Linuxes and possibly BSD's. Any suggestions?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    I also use Clonezilla from the Parted Magic Live CD, which contains a lot of other useful tools as well.

    If something goes wrong, like e.g. an image program messes up GRUB and you cannot boot into any system, there is a tool called Super Grub, which is also very useful.
