    Currently I have a server with 2 x 36GB scsi disks unraided with 1 drive currently off line.

    I want to make a complete image of the server and implement the 2nd disk in a mirrored array and use the image to restore onto the mirror.
    The partitions are 20GB system and 13GB DATA.

    My question is this..Will i need to use the Universal Restore option .?

    My thinking is that i wont, as its exactly the same hardware and TI will take an image of the complete hard disks / system and when i create the mirror array as one complete 36GB when I boot from the restore media i should have the ability to restore the original partitions.??

    Thoughts please.

    If you're running a version of Windows, you might take a look at this thread, Non Raid Image to Raid 0 config question, as it deals with going from non-RAID to RAID. You'd be converting to RAID 1 but the procedure would be the same.

    Hello Rangler,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please also take a look at this previous thread containing slightly different guide from the one provided by MudCrab on how to transfer your operating system from a single hard drive to a RAID array.

    You can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis True Image in the respective User's Guide.

    Thank you.
