A user can make an identical copy of the partition/hard drive. The cloned copy (on a different drive) can then be easily substituted for the troubled drive.

Back up software works on a different principle...but accomplishes the same result. The user is able to restore the latest backup (as long as the hard drive is not damaged).

There are all sorts of back up programs and they tend to operate in unique ways.

But...honestly it sounds as if you want something that acts like a combination of Windows System Restore and recovery/restore partitions/disks. I know of no such product but I haven't tried every system or program that exists.

From what I see...Tune Up Utilities is just another program similar to Norton System Works. Such programs promise a lot, but actually can hurt the system more than help, IMO. They appeal to users who want easy answers to maintaining a system but they neither provide backup capabilities nor do they protect any user from the next system disaster.
