    In additon there are some freeware edition of Acronis that I have used that did the job for me:

    Seagate DiscWizard
    Acronis True Image Western Digital Edition

    Also,

    Paragon Backup and Restore (go some useful tips from posts of SIW2 at the Paragon Support forum here)
    Keriver One-Click-Restore (check out the topics here or you may ask ichito about it).

    Some links again for alternative read to help you decide what to try/use:

    LINK 1 take a look at page 2 which contains the workaround if you plan to use DiscWizard or ATI WD edition with a different brand of hdd. The issues enumerated there seemed to have been fixed with the new version of Paragon. I did not experience that "freezing" when using DiscWizard/ATI WD edition on Windows 7.
