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.
