    I will create partitions, that are correct aligned from the begining
    1.) With PartMgr 11 Prof, I created pri+ext partitions
    2.) Restore from ext disc the system and data partitions
    3.) Run from system the partition align tool 2.0

    Is it possible from PartMgr 11 Prof to use an offset to create well aligned
    Its always created with offset 31kB

    I want to ask for an option offset inside the PartMgr,
    so I need not always run the part-align-tool after

    If you are restoring an image onto an existing partition that you've created with PM 11, even though it's aligned, the restored partition may not. Restoration deletes the previous partition and restores your image with the old offset.

    I would recommend breaking down into two steps rather than combining. Restore the image, and if it's not aligned, use the alignment tool.

    I am not sure when I need Partition Alignment tool.
    1. if I am using a single SSD - seems like it will be needed
    2. if I am using RAID0 on an HDD - seems like it will be needed

    current system
    WD HDD - black
    SSD - Vertex - 40 GB
    Vista Home Premium 32 bit
    Intel I7 920
    MSi motherboard
