Windows 7: Suggested B/R software for use with dual-boot drive?

Suggested B/R software for use with dual-boot drive?

I hate to ask this question because I'm sure it's been asked and answered in this forum (a number of threads of which I've read) but I'm now more unsure than ever.

My current drive is set up for two OS's (both Windows 7), one data partition and a System Reserve as can be seen in the attachment below. I just completed a clean install of both and would like to image it with the ability to restore just one or the other of the two unadulterated OS's later in time. Most all the backup & restore apps talked about in this forum seem to be capable of cloning and restoring the entire disk but I'm not sure if any are capable of a single partition (OS) restoration from the disk cloning.

I lieu of this I might just ask (like a broken record) for opinions as to which app you would choose simply to make a disk image given my dual-boot scenario.

After a bit more searching it looks like I have my answer via, once again, gregrocker. Seems my WD Acronis should allow individual OS restoration.

How to make a system image for a dual boot system

*EDIT* -- Also notice DavidW7ncus verifies he uses WD Acronis for backing up individually and restoring individually on a multi-boot.
