As an addition to another response, Norton Ghost can do a copy if 
sector mode, but it then copies every sector, and results in a large 
file if these sectors contain random information. This is also true with 
G4U and G4L, since they do raw copies with dd. Clearing out the 
unused sectors makes a huge difference. Once did an image after a 
clearn install of a 80GB drive, create a 12GB image. Then cleared 
the unused sectorrs, and created a new mage, only 2.5GB. I also 
found using the lzop compress instead of gzip results in about twice 
the speed, but about 15% larger image.
