    I am considering moving from a single Sata Drive to a Raid Array, but I don't want to reinstall everything. Is is possible to make an image of my single drive and then clone that image to my RAID Array after it is set up?

    Hello velomark,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    Yes, it is possible. However, the restored operating system may not boot because of a lack of the appropriate drivers for the newly installed RAID controller.

    If you want to be completely sure that the restored operating system will function correctly, we recommend using Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation or Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows (depending on which operating system you use) in conjunction with Acronis Universal Restore for your purposes. Acronis Universal Restore technology provides an efficient solution for hardware-independent system restoration by replacing the crucial HAL and hard disk controller drivers.

    Please see this FAQ Article for more information about transferring Windows to different hardware.

    You can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis Universal Restore in the corresponding Acronis True Image version User's Guide.
