I guess this is it. Again, I'm not entirely sure, but this seems closest.

If you need more, like network access to you backups, look at getting Acronis True Image Server/Workstation Backup and Restore 10.
I plan to just keep a copy on an external HDD.



Another question: how large would such an image be?

I've taken the advice given in this thread and created a system image of my C: drive and sequestered it away. We'll know if it works the next time I have to SCRAM. Thanks guys.
