Windows 7: how to image multiple drives automatically?

how to image multiple drives automatically?

I know this can be done manually, but I want it to be automatic when I do my daily backups.

Right now I am doing the system image + everything on the D: drive. I would like to just image both

any idea's? if I move my "my documents" to the D: drive, will it "trick" the system into thinking both the c: and d: are both system drives? can I do it by the command line somehow?

I think it is rather silly I can't just chose what images I want to make for the automatic backup. I mean the capability is there to make the image manually, why not make it a choice on the automatic backup?

I'm not familiar with Windows imaging, but can you not add two different imaging setups into Scheduled Tasks? Perhaps somone familar with it could comment?
