    I have an nForce 4 based system, using the nVidia RAID controller and running 3x300GB Maxtor SATA drives in a RAID0 configuration with Windows XP Pro.

    Backing up seems straight forward, however, how would I restore this back to a RAID0 array?

    I am assuming that I could in case of a system failure, do a basic install and then once Windows was setup in another RAID configuration, be it RAID0 or something else, I could restore the backup at that point.

    Would there be a way to do the restore from DOS, without having to start a Windows install manually?

    I would appreciate any information on this as I need to finish setting up my disaster recovery process.
