Jeremy,

Keep in mind that mirroring and cloning/imaging are not the same thing.  Mirroring merely keeps your data in sync between the primary and secondary; whereas, cloning/imaging does not do syncing, but rather images an entire partition or disk including the boot sectors, volume headers, etc.  That's why mirroring is found in backup utility software such as Genie-Soft Backup Manager and imaging is done with software such as Symantec's Norton Ghost, Acronis TrueImage, or the one you're using.  They are two different applications with two different objectives.  Use mirroring for your media and imaging/cloning for your O/S or boot disk.

Yes, you're right - though in my case it amounts to the same thing as I keep my media on my boot disk Grin I was just drawing the distinction between mirror/clone software and archive software like Retrospect.
