Mo by default it will save the image it produces to the root dir of the
drive you save too.  Alway remember to call it something sensible like
<machinename><backupdate>  it gets confusing if you backup more than one
machine else.

I did install  gddrescue from the Software Centre and could not get it up and running?? :( 
I can get ddrescue from the CL but I wanted to see the GUI of gddrescue but could not find it.

With Clonzilla it is a live CD which  I downloaded. You can specify the partitions you want to save
to including an external HD. But if it takes a long time then I might try David's suggestion.
