Windows 7: Backup and RAID

Backup and RAID

I have a RAID array, with my system on. (win7 x64).
I'm using Acronis for backup, but it can not restore my c drive, because after the required reboot it tries to load a special linux system to do the changes, but that linux can not start on RAID. Can somebody tell me a better backup application?
