  1. Is there any freeware than can used to boot,
    then can backup the entire harddisk content and burn into CD or DVD?

    When there is the need for recover, these CDs or DVDs can perform a harddisk format and restore the files?

    Just like Ghost Recovery Disk.

    Well yes there is one that's can do all of that and it's free but complex to use.

    Some you can use (freeware)

    GFI Backup
    http://www.gfi.com/backup-hm

    Fbackup
    http://www.fbackup.com/

    Reflect
    http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.asp (this one is complex but does it all)

    CloneZilla (opensource) (more like Norton ghost)
    http://clonezilla.org/

    Paragon Backup & Recovery Free Editon
    http://www.paragon-software.com/home/db-express/

    I use Arconis True Enterprise Edition but I haven't tried the Home Version with Windows 7 yet though since ATEE won't working with Windows 7?
