Windows 7: How to verify a Windows System Image

How to verify a Windows System Image

Is there anyway of verifying that a full System Image on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit was done correctly? The reason I'm asking is because on several occasions when I had to do a re-install the disk showed errors and I then just did an ordinary re-install.
Which wasn't a bad thing as it cleared a lot of toot on the pc!!
But I don't want to do it every time.

So is there a way of confirming or verifying that the system image was backed up on the dvds ok?

I remember Ghost would do it but I didn't like using Ghost very much.

If there isn't any, can you recommend a free backup software?

Thanks

I don't know of any way to verify a Windows Image. A lot of people her use Macrium Reflect Free version. The link is in my signature. Most people don't bother with verifying a Macrium image but the facility is there on the restore screen.

Thanks for that Hanna. The link to the ISO download is also in the tutorial now but it is easily missed.
