Question Which One is The Best HD Imaging Program?

Hi guys:
I used to hear that Acronis and Ghost were very good HD's Imaging programs, but then a few days ago a PC tech told me that they use only Ghost, because when they do copy of a copy of a copy with Acronis Pretty soon then the copy fails (has too many errors), which to my logic means that there is an accumulation of errors I guess; which tell me that any copy is not a perfect copy at all of course. According to him, that doesn't happen with Ghost.
Does anyone know if this is true?
Does anyone know of a free program that does the job? Which one is the best?
Thanks a lot for any input in this regard.
Cheers

Acronis is what I use, never had a reson to make a copy of a copy of a copy, I cannot figure out why or where you would have to do this. I guess i just don't see the big picture.

Used Acronis for years and never had problems, never made multiple copies that way, only used it for cloning and backing up.
