Hi Folks, My situation is as follows: I have a new PC with a system disc (Win XP Pro) on a RAID 0 (Stripe set) of capacity 500GB. I want to make a back-up "image" of the complete system. Now on my previous PC, which also had XP Pro but on a single hard drive, of capacity 250GB, I was able to open Partition Magic and copy the complete partition to another drive, either internal or external. The way that Partition Magic did this was that it did as much as it could from Windows, then did a restart and completed the final part from DOS (to copy the swap file and mbr I suppose, but I'm not sure what it does in DOS?) before loading windows again. This all worked fine. My question is really this: If I try to do the same on my new PC with its RAID 0 stripe system disc, I am sure that the Partition Magic actions from Windows will work OK, but when the system restarts and goes into DOS to complete the copy partition operations, the RAID 0 drivers will not be available in DOS and I am concerned therefore, that it will not "see" the striped set, it will only "see" the first hard disc. If I have a disaster and hence try to copy back from the external to the RAID 0 set, Will it "see" the set or just the first drive? Any experts on Partition Magic? I have thought of using Norton Ghost but I have exactly the same concerns. Thanks for reading the post. Any ideas or suggestions welcome. Regards.
