I want to do a complete backup of a Win 7 machine. I do have a copy of Acronis 11, however it is now rather old.
Just wondering what other users are using to achieve a full backup.

Wise move to question Acronis - Seen it fail several times. Sometimes it goes through the motions, everything looks OK, but when its required to put it back it fails with errors, generally saying its not a valid image.

Active @ gives you several options, but will do the whole drive, all partitions at once. There are others but they dont put the images back exactly as they were originally.

Active @ now has a free version as well, the only thing is you need the paid version to get the bootable CD,Compare Editions Here (http://www.disk-image.com/)
