Backup imaging software for XP Pro

Last Modified: 2015-08-24
Hey EE'ers,

One of my clients has an old XP machine on their network which is quite important for their apps. I am wanting to create a system restore image to say a USB drive for archiving purposes before I upgrade them. Can anyone suggest good imaging software like ShadowProtect that is free and easy to recover. Ideally, I would love to be able to spin this up as a VM if required but I don't want to push it! :)

Cheers in advance.
