The inbuilt Windows 7 one is pretty good, it'll do an image and regular backups with little fuss.
Agreed. I ditched Acronis when it failed to restore an XP backup from a system that was running dual boot (XP/Vista).
I've use the system backup feature in Vista and 7 and find that they meet my requirements. Take a full backup and then incremental backups to save on disk space. If you're a "real" man, you should test the restore capability...LOL.
I've done so on a couple of occasions and the restore worked flawlessly.
