Is there a way?
The cloud, like Amazon S3
you can back up with another partition on your hard drive.
Worst possible backup scenario. An HDD failure and poof.
Don't use your primary internal hard drive, i.e. don't partition it and put a backup on the partition. Disaster recipe for certain.
Your solution is either an online backup, like Mozy.com or Carbonite.com, get a time capsule, or get a hard drive. Hint: get a drive with firewire 800, it makes a difference. If you're lucky enough to have a Thunderbolt port, get a Thunderbolt drive, it is the ultimate.
If your data is crucial, then the best thing to do is to just get an external. They can be had for pretty cheap these days.
DVDs or CDs.
Burn optical media with the critical documents or data that you need to backup.
Backup to a flash drive and copy to another computer/HDD.
As mentioned above an external HDD is the best way to go.
Having 2 is better: one for time Machine and other for a clone.
