Once completed chipset drivers were installed and nvidia drivers loaded last Acronis True Image Home 2009 and boot disk created. all completed without any problems. to test I decided to image the raided drive from the acronis boot disk on reboot boot disk loaded the acronis software I selected to create a full image backup and was hit with a message to the effect that the drive had errors on it and I should exit and use my disk tools to check the drive. ok back into Windows and run check disks on reboot, they found no errors. ran acronis software from inside windows I selected to create a full image backup, this time it completed successfully, I choose to validate the image and this also completed successfully. Rebooted from the acronis boot disk and pointed it at the image created in windows and asked it to restore the image but it failed. odd acronis sees the SSD drives knows the size yet lists one as unallocated and the other as the sum total of the two raided together. not got around to installing just using one SSD un-raided but would be better if I could raid the two and image them. If anyone has the same problem your advice would be gratefully appreciated. Anthony.
