    After the demise of Powerquest's Partition Magic and DriveImage (thankyou very much Symantec, NOT) I searched for replacements for several months and eventually found BootIt Bare Metal

    BootIt Bare Metal is not free. I purchased a licence in 2008 and have since not had to fork out any more hard-earned whenever I upgrade to the latest version.

    Includes "Image for DOS" which is a far more reliable imaging program than any program that runs under Windows (dons helmet and retreats into trench, incoming!).

    I use AOMEI Partition Assistant Pro (V5.6) and have found it excellent. Of particular use is its ability to convert GPT disk to MBR disk and vice-versa -- very useful in terms of changing from a Legacy to a UEFI Booted system (the conversion process can be carried out in a few minutes without any OS or software having to be uninstalled/re-installed. A big time-saver. Of course, one would most likely only have to do this once with one's setup, but the time and effort saved is well worth the cost of AOMEI (in my opinion, anyway!) The tutorials that come with the software are excellent.
    (My Setup: Custom built: 4.00GHz Intel Core i7-6700K CPU; MSI Z170A Gaming Carbon Motherboard (Military Class III); Win 10 Pro (64 bit)-(UEFI-booted); 16GB RAM; 512GB SAMSUNG SD850 PRO SSD; 120GB SAMSUNG 840 SSD; Seagate 2TB Barracuda SATA6G HDD; 2 X GeForceGTX 1070 8GB Graphics Card (SLI); Office 2013 Prof (32-bit); MS Project 2013 (32-bit); Acronis TI 2017 Premium, Norton Internet Security, VMWare Workstation12 Pro).
