FarStone's TotalRecovery 7 Pro or TotalRecovery USB are good options as well. Their Universal Restore seems better than other programs I have tried and it doesn't take 8 hours (I too have tried it on a dying hard drive which CHDSK couldn't fix). TotalRecovery 7 Pro can do cloning, but I always prefer to do the backup and (universal) restore. Simple interface, simple program, powerful functionality. When backing up, just select some of the partitions you don't want (like manufacturers restore partition etc.). Once restored, you can change the partition size to match the new hard drive anyway.
