So the answer seems to be carry on using Acronis, and leave the Windows backup alone, ftb.
Thanks Bioran for asking the question and for the helpful answers

I would say so. The things this thread reminded me of that are good in Acronis are:
1) It does any one or group of partitions on a machine as one job.
2) If you do multiple partitions on one image, you can later restore any one of those partitions from that larger image, not all of them if not needed.
3) It also does non-image backups, where you specify specific folders.

All in all, it's a very versitle tool. I started using it back in early XP days as it was the only one I found where you could retore to a naked hard drive and then actually boot the drive, every time.

Thanks JeeperDon.
What version are you on now, v11, or the new (unpopular) 2009 version.

I've used them all. I bought TI 2009 (ver 12) a month before W7 came out, had it on with Vista, and made it's Recovery CD that way. I now use that CD with W7x64 for both backups and restores (boot separate to do either). I tried installing TI 11 on the W7x64, which did install, but decided I didn't want to trust it as it is a one notch older tool than their current, with a one notch newer OS than they support with 2009. Acronis via Chat told me to use the 2009 CD until they have a W7 compat update.

Before you make any decisions on the W7 backup, you might go through the tutorials. There are more options than I was aware of.

If you have the ability for an eSATA drive, make sure your backup software can use that--it is sooo fast.

Images are typically used to back up ALL of the thousands of files in a partition or drive.

I'm not sure how you might do that without an existing tool.

Images can be done manually or can sometimes be done on a schedule.

More than likely, I don't follow your questions.
