Which Cloning Software For OS ?

I'd like to backup my OS from my SSD and store it on my HDD but I'm unsure how to do this, Any insight would be appreciated

I normally use Clonezilla. It's open source and thus free.

http://clonezilla.org/

Download the USB image and follow the instructions here to set it up with a USB key. Then boot from the key.

Is it possible to save the backup to an internal drive as I know a lot of these programs only let you backup to an external or dvd's :-/

Don't get the norton one if you have UEFI bios btw, it can't clone them. Acronis however, can, and I believe there's not much it can't do in terms of image backup/cloning. Very impressive.
