What do you think is the best way to back up my hard drives in my situation?
I have three internal drives. First one is the main (c:) partitioned with (D:), the second Music (F:), and the third Pix (G:).
I also have a removable drive w/ three partitions which I use as Back Up.

I'm running Win 7 Pro (x64) and Norton 360.

What I would like to do is create an 'uncomplicated' mirror image of my 3 drives onto the back up drive.
I would also need to access the back up drive and selectively restore files, folders, pix, etc.... possible to different PC's.

I know I can use 360 (which I have) But accessing specific can be quit daunting.

Please share your thought and suggestion!

I use Acronis True Image 2013 for backup. It runs anywhere from $49 to $79.
You can try Macrium Reflect Free version.

Both allow you to do manual or scheduled backups and both allow you to browse the backups to restore specific files or folders as well as do a full image restore.

I use Macrium Reflect, one of the easiest to use, FREE if you just want to make images yourself, or from $45 if you want to be able to schedule them regularly and do differential images etc.
