Shifting existing RAID data onto a new RAID set

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My current setup is utilizing onboard RAID0. I'd most likely be shifting to hardware RAID in the near future and would like to ask how could I shift my data over without reinstalling Windows?

Another question I have is, if the OS of a server is installed on a RAID 0 hardware configuration, and the rest of the data on a RAID6 setup, how would one go about backing up the data and doing a complete image/clone/backup of the OS if the RAID dies?

Please link me if these questions have been answered before already as I've searched and did not come up with any definite or complete answers.

Thanks in advance!

From personal experience you can't transfer a RAID array between different controllers. It won't detect the array.

Any imaging software should be able to the job. I really like Acronis for that.

So I would have to use a same controller if I want to retain the data between migrations of a FUBARED RAID and cloning it using Acronis?
