how to backup ubuntu os

I have two hard disks one running ubuntu Os and the other is empty unformatted partition.I had to backup the ubuntu Os to the unformatted hard disk. I did the following steps.
->I installed gparted. I formatted the unformatted partition /dev/sdb with ext3
->It created the partition table sdb1.
->I then mounted that partition to /mnt/backupdrive/backup
->I installed sbackup from apt-get
sudo apt-get install sbackup.
->I then used it to backup my ubuntu Os to sdb1
