    I'm frenchi, sorry for my poor english !

    I discovered the ACRONIS tools after a MBR crash and after purchase a USB disk with provided CD ACRONIS TI 7.

    It appears, very good tools.
    I do all my backup on my old PC (IDE disk) without any problem !


    - - - P R O B L E M T O D A Y - - -

    New PC, New Xp SP2 Pro install on a K7S8E+ with a SATA RAID 0, (2 x seagate 160G), first job after install : image the C: partition
    = boot partition
    to the second D: partition, (all in NTFS) and on a USB2 drive.

    T o o l s :
    - GHOST 9 : backup and restoring = OK !
    (access to the sata raid disk by F6 + raid drivers on disquet)
    - GHOST 8 : backup and restoring = OK !
    (access to the sata raid disk direct, without to do anythink)
    - GHOST 2003 : backup and restoring = OK !
    (access to the sata raid disk direct, without to do anythink)

    - ACRONIS Trial TI v. 8.0 - build 937 : backup = OK ! but restoring = BAD !!!
    ... Trying with a full Trial TI 8.937 boot CD ...

    Description within Restore image Wizard / Boot CD :
    Disk 1
    Partition Flag Capacity Free Type
    SCSI0_VOL1 (C:) - Pri, Act - 56,04 GB - 22,37 GB - NTFS
    None (E:) - Pri - 242,1 GB - FS : None Partition 0x7
    Disk 2
    Partition Flag Capacity Free Type
    Unallocated 149 GB - Unallocated
    Disk 3
    Partition Flag Capacity Free Type
    LACIE (D:) - Pri, Act - 232,9 GB - 1,2 GB - NTFS

    Conclusion :
    The SATA-RAID 0 is not recognized correctly !

    I tested to restore the copy from the USB2 Disk to the C:
    It appeared OK, but after booting, search of disquette and CD boot,
    and then nothing, it's freeze !

    I restore the Ghostimage, OK, it's good.
    The C: partition was empty or inaccessible.
    Within windows, I generate the report.txt file, and try to send it.

    Where is the problem ?
    Does ACRONIS TI 8.937, support the SATA RAID ?
    Incompatiblity with the Asrock motherboard ?
    ... ?

    Thanks for your help.
