is that it images the disk, not only the files. That includes the directories and the FAT (file allocation table). So just leaving out the files would lead to an utterly inconsistent file system. You wouldn't want to restore that.
A disk image is an all or nothing copy of the disk. A partition image is an all or nothing copy of the partition.
So the thing to do for you: move the things you don't want to include in the partition image to another partition. Or move the things you don't want to include to another disk.
That makes the solution: don't image the disk, but image a partition and put the files/folders you don't want to include on another partition.
