    I've been using the free version of Macrium Reflect for a couple years now.  It's pretty easy to set up & use, and it's been flawless so far in creating "useable" disk or partition images that can be used to restore from if need be.

    Would definitely recommend, can't beat it for free. That said it's deceptively powerful and will have a slight learning curve with understanding how to get it to do exactly what you want it to do. I had some... interesting... results the first couple times I used it to clone disk images. The automated backup service is extremely nice.

    I use EaseUS as the free version has incremental backup which I personally prefer over differential.

    CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K
    RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum (2 x 8GB) 3000 MHz CL-15

    I prefer AOMEI Backupper Standard. it's a magic freeware which help me solve many problems concerned to backup and restore. with it, you just a few click, you can finish whatever operation you want. 
    hope it works for you
