Do you mean the software that comes loaded on a WD External hard drive?

Western Digital does have software you can use if you have a Western Digital drive in your system.

Acronis True Image WD Edition Software
http://support.wdc.com/product/downloaddetail.asp?swid=119
Key Features of Acronis True Image WD Edition Software:

Drive Cloning - Copies the source drive to a new WD drive, leaving all data on the source drive.

Drive Migration - Erase the source drive after the new WD drive has been imaged.

Drive Deployment - Enables users to prepare a WD drive so that selected folders or partitions can be excluded from the destination image.

Drive Image Backup - The long-term usage of the Drive Kit software will be to provide full drive image backups of a source drive at any time. Backup drive images will be stored as a file, which can be copied to any direct attached drive, network attached storage drive or optical media (CD/DVD).

Drive Image Recovery - The Recovery Manager enables users to restore a drive image from a direct or network attached drive. The Recovery Manager can also either erase just a portion of the drive to be used for the restored drive image, or all of the previous OS.

Create a Bootable Standalone Recovery Manager - With the Drive Kit software, users can create a bootable ISO image file, which contains the WD Drive Kit Standalone Recovery Manager software.

Recover a Drive Image from the Bootable Recovery Manager Software - The bootable Standalone Recovery Manager enables users to recover a drive image from either a CD/DVD drive, a direct attached drive, or a network attached drive.


Seagate has similar software available .
