Iam using window 2008 server on drive C and then on D drive i have all virtual machines folder.

I also have two more internal SATA drives

i want to backup the whole HD i.e drive C and D.

I like the way Vmware workstation takes snapshot of VM.

Is there any software or utility from where i can make snapshots or backups just like vmware so that i can restore at any time in the past.

The best thing which i like is that e,g i want test some software then first i make the snapshot of current state and then if something goes wrong i go back to that snapshot.

is there anything like that for actual OS just like vmware does for for VM.

I should be able to save the state if want to test something
