    can anyone recommend a good hard drive backup utilty which can backup an entire MacOS X drive to file and later on restore the same image back to hard drive. Similiar to what ghost can do for NTFS/FAT/FAT32...etc. Thanks.

    Take a look at SuperDuper. It can do what you want, and I can vouch that it works. CarbonCopyCloner is another one that's recommended, but I haven't used it personally.

    Backup Utility

    Hi,
    I will second SuperDuper. I have also used CCC, shich is free. However, the flexibility of Superduper makes it well worth the fee.

    I have a question. Can you save the file onto the same drive which you are mirroring ?

    Carbon Copy Cloner worked in the past for me...
    Makes an exact duplicate of your drive to another.
