Is there any reliable program that I can use to ghost a hard drive

"I had a clean install Windows 10 on my computer just several minutes ago. Thinking that system problem and the accompanying unexpected data loss disaster can happen at any time, I intend to ghost the hard drive to backup the system and data. So even if anything bad happens one day in the future, I will not be troubled with system reinstalling & data recovery job. But I completely have no idea about how to ghost a hard drive? Is there any reliable Windows backup software that can make this job easier?"
