If you are looking for an imaging program, there are several good ones. Macrium has been mentioned.

Aomei Backupper is also excellent - the free version even allows restoring to different hardware.
Best Free Backup Software for Windows 10, Windows 8.1/8, Windows 7, Vista, XP

The only free version that lets you exclude selected files/folders from an image is Paragon.

If you google "searchprotect" you will find it is a common annoyance.
