DriveImage XML is an freeware which is easy to use and reliable for imaging and backing up partitions and logical drives. Image creation uses the Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Services (VSS), allowing you to create safe images of your drives even from drives currently in use. Since images are stored in XML format, you can even use the back up with other third party tools.
