Possible to clone to a Raid0 array?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I finally got my Raid 0 array of 2 1TB Seagates setup. I have a 2 TB Toshiba that I was using as a boot drive and that also currently holds all of my data. Is it possible to use cloning software like Acronis to clone the 2 TB Toshiba to the 2 1TB Raid0 array? The partitions are identical in size and the Toshiba has about 750 gigs free.

Sure, you're just mirroring the file system that sits on top of the drive. As the software writes to the array the controller will automatically split the data between drives.

Yes ... and Acronis is a good bet.

I used Acronis v.12 and have restored full disc images to my 1TB Raid 0 array on a couple different occasions and it was flawless.

Thanks for the info guys. However, now I have a new issue. No matter what I set the boot priority to in the BIOS, the raid array is what will boot first. If I have to set the mobo back to IDE mode for the Toshiba drive to boot first, will Windows even be able to recognize the array to clone in the first place?

I can't think of any other reason why it refuses to boot the Toshiba dirve first.

I have that mobo, if it comes into play in this. All I know is that it ignores my boot priority.
