Windows 7: backup strategy

backup strategy

I want to backup my windows 7 ultimate desktop. I have 3 separate drives. C: drive is for OS, I also have dual boot with latest Ubuntu with it on the C: drive. I have a I: drive that has all my apps installed on this drive which is 800gig as raid 0 all apps, games etc. everythings works perfect. I have at least 200 gig left on the I: drive. on the C: drive i have 80gig free space on this as well. I have a server with latest version of Symantec backup. I have a JBOD setup for backup purposes on this server. I need some insight into how to back up these two drives in case of failure. my guess was to do a Image backup of the C drive using Acronis true image then do a standard backup using symantec of the I: drive. any other insight to this backup scheme would be appreciated.

That's not Windows Disk Management.

Type "Disk Management" into the start box to find it.
