Hi focusen,

i myself am a bigger fan of norton ghost than acronis but a lot of experts will say that acronis is better for servers

Acronis
http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/choose-trueimage/

Ghost
http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=br&pvid=ghost10


Cheers!

I have used Acronis, but am not exactly sure how to use it, how do you create a image of a raid 5 disc.  Do you have to boot to the acronis disc, because when I tried it it would see my raid 5 as a source disc in windows

just got a confirmation that you can image RAID5 using ghost and acronis, you just have to add the support for your RAID card
