    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    You can make an Image of a hard drive and when you restore it the hard drive will be in exactly the same state as when you made it.
    There are many imaging programs. I like and use Macrium Reflect free version from here :-
    https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree
    I boot to an image restore usb stick to make images and restore them.
    The program will make the Usb stick (or a CD/DVD) for you.

    Also you can just make backups of selected files.

    You can also mount the Image and copy files from it onto the hard drive.

    See this guide for more details :- https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW7/Backup,+imaging+and+cloning
