Isn't there a free way to do the same thing?

You can basically do the same with any Windows installation CD, which allows you to access the Recovery PE or any other Antivirus Rescue CD (for the Antivirus scanner part). From the Recovery PE, using the command prompt, I can do pretty much everything I want, even backing up files to an external storage media if I want to. Personally, I wouldn't invest money in this, but I would invest in a DVD on which you'll have the installation .iso for your version of Windows, that you can use in case it fails.

A back-up ISO DVD is a great item to keep handy.

It is because not everyone have a built-in recovery partition on their drive that they can use to access the Recovery PE. When you can't boot into Windows or can barely use it, the Recovery PE and the command prompt become your best troubleshooting environment and tool in these cases.
