GeneralPotential SSD failure, recommendations for disk imaging Pin

It seems, according to Dell's own tools, that my trusty Precision's ssd is on the way out and they are accordingly dispatching a replacement.

Under normal circumstances I would usually take this as an opportunity to start afresh. I keep backups of all data so normally it's not the end of the world to lose a few hours, or days as the the case may be to rebuild the machine and get it back to the way I like it.

Time is not on my side at present so I need to cheat, taking a full image of the existing disk in order to restore it to the replacement when it arrives next week.

I've never tried this approach before and would be keen to know if others have and with what degree of success. Assuming that indeed it has been successful what would be their recommendation of a suitable product to carry this out.

The ssd in question has a capacity of 500gb. I have a NAS available with enough room to accommodate a backup of this size, alternatively I could always access some cloud storage.
