There are several progs that can create a backup image of a hard drive's data, but they don't make an ISO, they use there own proprietary format so you will need to use the same prog to access any files on that backup image.
The two most popular are "Norton Ghost"
and "Acronis True Image"
You will need to have at least 60Gb spare drive space on which to create and store the image as that will be the approximate size of a compressed image file from a full 80Gb disk. It should ideally be on a separate physical drive not your system drive, since if your system drive should fail your backup image file will also be lost. That's less likely to happen on a separate drive which isn't reading and writing all day long.
