My PC recently crashed and it simply takes too long to recreate my environment. Now, that I have finally completed setting up my PC to a good working state with my chosen programs, I want to find the best software that would allow me to copy the entire drive and system settings into a file that can be saved and will allow me to copy the entire drive and settings back to my current state from a usb network or disc set. A final point, if this takes several different software packages, that is also considered a valid recommendation.
All software recommendations are appreciated and Im sure will be valid. However, the recommendation I end up choosing will be awarded the "correct" answer for the question.
