I am not as familiar with it as others may be, but "DD Rescue" is one method that is free and reliable.
There is also Image for Linux. I have it but don't use it because I don't generally make backups of my Linux installs. But I do often use, and have for years, 'Boot It' and 'Image for Windows' from the same company with great success.
Some other might chime in with some other options.
