so, I just purchased a 4.5TB NAS drive (eventually upgrading to 9TB once 3TB drives go on sale again... for now, it's 2 x 3TB and 2 x 750gb). I thought it would be a good opportunity to setup backups for my operating system in case a drive ever dies or the OS gets hosed (and maybe even ditch the RAID1 on my desktop if restores are easy enough; my long term plan is scaling back my desktop so I can get a smaller case, which isn't an option with my current setup that has 6 internal drives) question is, any recommendations on backup software to run backups of my windows OS? (Win 7 currently, but might upgrade to 8 in the near future). some kind of bare-metal restore option would be ideal, to make recoveries faster. cloud/offsite isn't really a requirement (I use dropbox for my irreplaceable files; this backup would just be to recover my OS and spare the pain of having to reinstall everything) price is obviously a factor... it seems funny for me to ask this question since my entire job is running server backups for a web hosting company, but the enterprise-level software we use is way more expensive than I'd pay for home use.
