    I always used Acronis True Image: it's an excellent software to
    backup/clone your computer/data.

    Is there a similar software but free?

    Depends on what you're trying to backup, Windows or Linux.

    The computer is Windows but you usually use a bootable CD, so you
    don't need to know about the content of the HD if you want to backup
    the mirror..

    Here is a long list of freeware software:

    I'd like to know an excellent one, like ATI Home that I used for a
    long time..

    Thank you again

    Amazingly easy considering its versatility, Backup Manager handles scheduled and manual backups with ease, and can even purge your backup media of old backups on a regular schedule. The Disaster Recovery option insists on backing up everything on the drive, but you can restore the system while keeping the data unchanged by deselecting your data folders when you restore a Disaster Recovery backup. You can try this general-purpose backup program before you buy it.

    Every other reliable system backup program I know of is image-based, meaning that it restores the entire drive--data as well as the system. That's fine if you're recovering from a hard drive crash, but if you want to restore last month's Windows installation while keeping today's documents, you'll need to fully restore one backup, then selectively restore another.
