I just used Acronis for the first time the other day to clone a HD showing bad sectors and was just flabbergasted with the result; I attached the new drive to the machine with failing drive via USB to SATA adapter, installed & ran Acronis to burn the image to the new drive, unplugged the new drive, removed the old one, installed it into the laptop, and it booted right up.
Like, no problems at all. Zip, zero...nothing. And the machine is part of a domain.
I was floored. It was so easy & painless.
Other than that, I've used DriveImageXML purely for backup purposes. I've used it to write images to drives before, but had to go through a process of rebuilding the boot record & other crap.
So........are you trying to backup, keep bootable images for disaster recovery, what?
I've read very good things about StorageCraft....
