I use Macrium, which creates it's own boot cd to run recovery. Have used the free and paid version, free does everything the paid version does except paid version has an extra backup app just for files.

 

Macrium Reflect HERE

Paragon gets good reviews too.It has added feature of creating a bootable usb flash which is handy for those with no cd/dvd drive.
