Excluding from system image

Is there is 3rd party system imager that will allow me to exclude certain folders from my system image? I've done a few searches but would like a few recommendations first.

After doing much more searching it seems Acronis True Image Home 2010 is the best option.

No, few less features. But many here use it and love it. Try it, and then buy something else if not satisfied.
