Well there are 3 good options,

Paragon

Acronis

Clonezilla

I've used the first 2 options quite a bit and have been happy with the results

Hi.

Drive snapshot does a very good job. You can test it in seconds because it needs no installation, downloads fast (less than half an MB), is fully functional, knows command line mode. http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/down.htm

We use acronis at the university where I work, it works fairly well. On some of the old images we used to use Norton Ghost, but have since gone to the Acronis product.

One good thing about the norton ghost product you can create the ghost image on to the server instead of creating image discs. But I guess if you want the images available to the individual departments then you probably will not be using the ghost cast sever.

If you have many PCs, Windows Storage Server Essentials and Small Business Server Essentials both other client PC backup as a built-in feature that allows you to restore from bare metal.  Otherwise you can use some of the third party products like those mentioned above.  Keep in mind, XP is DEAD.  In 9 months or so, there will be NO MORE UPDATES for it and security holes subsequently found could expose your company to data loss/viruses or worse, liability if you have customer data stolen.
