Generally I use Acronis, but I've been known to use Clonezilla also.

In theory it should, since it's just booting into it's own environment, but I've never tested it, I thought the built in Disk Utility on Macs could also, but I've never tested that either, I usually just use Time Machine to backup userdata and reinstall fresh.

I don’t think macrium does. Unsure about acronis.

Acronis True image.

 

It can do sector by sector or smart archiving.

Can I suggest: CarbonCopyCloner from Bombich which features a trial download

 

If you'd like to create a .cdr image(there are other options you can choose from, including encryption)  you can then use Disk Utility and go up the the menu and select File -> New Image -> Image from Folder. I tried the process of taking my whole Home folder and archiving that as a CD/DVD. I can't choose my Fusion Drive but I guess that's just my situation as I have a make-it-yourself Fusion Drive.

I guess I'm way off the path with suggesting a Mac program when it's a Windows program that's the obvious need.
