Does anyone know of a Windows alternative that has the same functions as Disk Utility? I am particularly looking for the "restore" function. Preferably it would be able to work on drives formatted as Mac OS X Journaled. Thank you for your help.

Admittedly I am not 100% up to speed on Windows utilities but I don't think you are going to find one that works on drives formatted Mac OS X journaled.

There aren't any Windows utilities that can work with the Mac HFS file system.
Maybe a Linux utility like the GParted Live CD (which can be run from Windows) might work but I'm not sure.

You can check on their website at Source Forge: LINK
