I don't think so, but you can google "Free Disk Cloning"

Here's a few.

Of course, you're not going to have the fancy settings that a paid software will, but it will still be able to get the job done.

the real reason for clone a disk is for back up a full disk in case something goes wrong? I have this program SYSTEM MECHANIC 6 and it has Create and mount new image, iam using now but it s taking forever, this is normal?

Yeah, it will probably take a while, depending on the size of the disk you are wanting to clone.

I user either Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image, but none of these are free..... yes image creation can take a long time if you have a large amount of data to back up...if you are making an image of 4GB then it should be pretty quick if you are like me and have a few games loaded as part of your image then making a 35GB image can for sure take about an hour.
