Image or backup Windows 7 BootCamp partition

What are the alternatives for imaging or backing up a Windows 7 64-bit BootCamp partition? I'm running Snow Leopard on a MacBook.

I've looked at WinClone, but there are reports that it's flaky with Snow Leopard. I have Acronis True Image and Bootit NG for Windows but I'm assuming that these are incompatible.

I've just built the same setup on my macbook pro, put a 32GB partition on my main 200GB hard disk.

Since I formatted the disk as NTFS I really can't do anything with it inside of OSX.  Or at least I haven't really looked for a way yet....

Winclone looks to be the most popular mac side program to use.

I was just planning on using DiskUtility to make an image of the partition every now and then... since win7 isn't my main OS.

Good idea. I didn't know that was possible. I've followed your suggestion.
I'll leave this question open for a day or two just in case there is any other useful input.

Didn't know you could do that with the Disk Utility. Works perfectly.
