I am having to rebuild a computer from scratch. Once I finish installing all the drivers and software, I want to make a copy, or an image, or the computer exactly as it is. In case the computer goes down again, I can just pop the disc in and the system will be restored to that fresh point.

I know there are enterprise tools for it, but I need to know if it can be done just for a single desktop, all by its lonesome?

The best disc imaging software is Acronis True Image, but it isn't free. The best free alternative is Macrium Reflect.
