And so, um, can anyone recommend a good backup program that will mirror drive c to drive z without making a horrible mess?
I use the Easeus program I originally mentioned.

Free backup software for data backup & disaster recovery. Hard drive system backup software, disk clone and disk image freeware - EASEUS

This will make image backups and also file backups.
