I have read through many posts here but have failed to find a definitive answer to my question. I am considering the purchase of two 76G Raptors to use in a raid but am worried about data security. My mobo, GA-81PE1000 Pro will support SATA0, SATA1 but I was wondering if I could use Drive Image to mirror the raid to an 80G IDE "backup only" drive in case of failure of one of the SATA drives. After repair/replace/format could I then restore everything back to the Raid. If this is not feasible then I am open to any suggestions. Thanks for any help. Cheers, Dean.
