Looking for good Imaging Software

Hello Experts,

I am looking for a good imaging software that will allow me to take an image of one PC and apply it to another PC. The OS is Windows 7.

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.

For backup or for deployment?

For Backup. I have a Windows 7 system that is failing and want to get an image now. Will apply the Image (clone) to the new system when it comes in. Hardware will probably be different.
Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
Windows licenses are tied to the hardware.  You can't legally or easily transfer to new hardware.  You can use tools like Acronis or even the Windows 7 Backup program to create a backup and restore it to a new hard drive.  But you would be unwise trying to "copy" or "clone" the system to a new computer.  Even if it seems to work, the hardware changes could cause instability or changes since that's not what Windows is expecting.
CEOs need to know what they should worry about

Nearly every week during the past few years has featured a headline about the latest data breach, malware attack, ransomware demand, or unrecoverable corporate data loss. Those stories are frequently followed by news that the CEOs at those companies were forced to resign.
