Windows equivalent to SuperDuper

I'm a huge fan of SuperDuper. In fact, I've sold dozens and dozens of copies for my Mac clients who needed a backup solution. I especially appreciate its ease of use, the smart clone function, and the ability to easily make a bootable backup. There's something very satisfying about backing up all of the data on a client's machine, then booting from that backup, and showing them that everything's there, but on the backup disk instead of just the main hard drive.

Now I've got a client or two who want me to set up a backup solution for their Windows boxes. And I'm stumped.

So I asking the group here: Is there something on the Windows side that duplicates the function of SuperDuper? Again, I'd like something that's simple to use and foolproof. I'm not even sure if it's possible to make a truly bootable clone in Windows the way you can on the Mac. Maybe others could weigh in on this.

So, the question remains: Since Short Pocket doesn't make a Windows version of SuperDuper, what's the next best thing?

Thanks.

Not that I know of. There are two primary "cloning" products - Acronis' and Norton Ghost, but you can't boot from the backup.

There is one: http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/index.htm. I use it a lot with Windows Clients and it worked great there like SuperDuper on Mac's

How about ntbackup?

... title says it all. It's not horrible to use. I haven't actually had to use it to restore a bootable drive, though, just to recover earlier versions of files I accidentally over-wrote.

I use an app called Casper: http://www.fssdev.com/products/casper/

Works very well but is a bit more complicated than SuperDuper.
