Hi Experts...searched the web for a solution, but did not find what I wanted.  Just configured a new HP Elite 9470m laptop with a 170gb SSD running Win7.   Boy, it's a beautiful machine, but I am want to have a way of cloaning or backing-up the SSD incase it get zapped or whatever.  There seems to be plenty of information on the web, but most is about how to restore.  
Can you guys give me a quick solution.  The laptop is on a network so I could backup to the server or go to iBackup remotely (Uck!!).  Anyway, I am looking for a piece of software that can automatically (or manually) backup (or cloan) the SSD on periodic basis.
Thanks in advance for you help...you guys always have an answer.  Thanks for being there.

Why pay when the onboard solution allows "bare-metal-backup/-restore"?
Open windows backup. Scheduled, network-aware, hot-imaging-possible, free.
If that does not please you for any reason, I strongly recommend this http://www.drivesnapshot.de/en/ - trial works without installation, nearly omnipotent.
