Is there such a thing? If so, which is the best? I don't really even know where to look.

Or did you mean image/picture viewing/editing/postprocessing software? :o
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

If you're talking hard-drive imaging, DriveImageXML seems pretty solid. Among other things, it can split its files to CD size, and Ultimate Boot CD for Windows includes the program.

Sounds like what I'm looking for, I'll give it a try, thanks!

I have not tried it, but it's been recommended to me.

Linux-based whole drive imaging. Not a bad program, but not particularly user friendly. The server edition is pretty powerful as a tool to rapidly deploy images to a large number of systems.

I use it. My 70 year old Father uses it. I had to walk him through on the phone the first time, but there was nary a glitch.

Yep, Macrium Reflect. It works well enough but the free version won't restore an image to a hard drive that's smaller than the drive the image came from.
