    I have an older system with the following specs:

    Asus A7V333 w/Onboard Promise MBFasttrack133 Raid Controller
    1GB DDR400 Memory
    Two 80GB Drives, Striped, 2 Partitions

    While Acronis TrueImage v9 recognizes my raid array in WinXP, it can't make sense of it while in the rescue environment. It either recognizes two independent drives or a single unified drive with an erroneous capacity rating. I have a couple questions...

    A) Is support for the promise fasttrack133 raid controller lacking in this version of trueimage v9.0?
    B) Can I modify the rescue media somehow to use drivers the MBFasttrack133 drivers?
    C) I have 2 partitions, one for all my system files and programs; the other for storage. If I store my backup images on the second partition in the striped raid array, Acronis won't destroy both partitions trying to restore the primary, will it?

    Thanks so much,
