Backup software

I'm about to re-build a PC and have made the appropriate file backup (that I can think of) but as this isn't my PC and the person isn't very computer literate, I can see there being files that I've missed that they are going to want back.

Can Anyone suggest any software that will allow me to make a full backup and then pick the odd file out of it's image?

Preferably free

Windows Easy Transfer leaves little to chance.

norton ghost, or acronis trueimage will give you a complete bare metal backup - you can even mount the backup as a drive in windows and copy stuff across if you need it.

Ghost can even convert the backup into a vmware image if you want (never used it, but always thought 'ooh, nice')

also, driveimage xml does a full backup (and is free), but I don't think it has all the little extras that the other two do.

ImageX by Microsoft will image the hard drive like Ghost and Trueimage does and is free to boot. It's part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit

Images can be mounted into folders and can have stuff added and taken away from them that way.

I went with the cheap and shifty, copy everything across whilst using BartPE. However I will try Norphys suggestion.

Thanks to everyone else tho - I'd avoided Ghost / Trueimage as they cost and will require me to find some sort of crack / serial for it which I really wasn't in the mood for.
