Any other tips? unless I'm looking at the wrong place on R drive, it's $400...
Has some free Drive imaging software suggestions, most of the fully featured stuff costs money, but depending on what you want to do, one of these might work.
Yeah $400 is pretty expensive and most stuff gets even more expensive sadly (some licenses I've seen for software like this costs $800-1500 depending on the use).
If you aren't using the software more than once I would suggest just using the trial to make your image, and restore as soon as possible unless you need it for long term storage then you need to probably try one of the free ones from the link.
