How To Create A Image Of Harddrive

I have a 64 gig SSD hard drive that is simply too small at this point.  This drive is running my OS and whatever else has made it's way to this drive. I want to create an exact image of this drive and put it onto a larger SSD drive and just swap them out.  What is the best way to achieve this..

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
