    I am looking into purchasing TI. I would like to back up a XP Raid 0 system to a USB HD. If I do this will I be able to use the boot CD made by TI to fully restore the system from a failure. I have read through some of the forums and literature but I can not determine if TI can restore to a Raid 0 system without first reloading XP or orther operations. Your help is appreciated.

    Hi, rjt123

    The only 100% sure way to know is to run a test. [to make sure the BootCD can see your USB HDD]

    Take Care,

    Yes, I see the wisdom of trying the bootable CD to see if it can recognize my USB HD. A second item of interest will be if it can see my RAID 0 drives. Without them I can not "reimage" the system. I will try these tests asap, THANX for the input.
