Best backup solution

Medium Priority

I'm looking at upgrading my backup solution, I have a windows 2003 server with mirrored HD's and 5 workstations running win xp pro. No exchange server ... not a heavy email shop. I'm considering Acronis true Image & Backup Exec for my solution at this point, I already have symantec ver 8 so its probally a no brainer. I just wondering if you guys have any thoughts... we are currently using tapes for backup at this point but I would like to move it to a disk based system and maybe have a weekly/monthly backup to tape so they could be stored off site. The reason to change to disk is because its faster and also it would give me the ability to do drive imaging if that makes sense, I'm not sure how well a disk restore to dissimilar hardware would work, even though they tought it like it is a very doable solution

Ah sorry are you using Symantec BE System Recovery version 8.x?  Have had very good luck with it however there is a driver (recovery point browser?  v2imount.sys I think) that causes BSOD problems on installation of some service packs and such that I routinely remove.
Have you considered incremental forever on-line / off-site backup?
