Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

I've been trying AOMEI Backupper Standard (free) imaging software as a possible alternative to Redo Backup and Macrium Reflect. So far I have been quite impressed by its backup and restore capabilities of disks, partitions and files/folders.
I note that it includes backup/restore of USB sticks.
Note that AOMEI Backupper Standard is available in both WinPE and Linux-bootable versions. I'm using the far more capable (yet still free) AOMEI PE Builder as this includes both AOMEI Backupper Standard and AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard (plus it allows me to add my own portable utilities to the PE image before creating a bootable USB stick). It was a little bit longer to setup than just the WIN PE version of AOMEI Backupper Standard but is so much more useful.

Excellent bit of software, FREE, enables you to do loads of stuff, like booting multiple windows install iso's from one usb stick as well as multiple linux distros, recovery discs, etc.
For what you want, it is really simple - one click to image a usb stick to a file, or a file to a usb stick.
Hope that helps,
