    I'm looking for backup software that will allow me to restore to Raid 1 drives from USB external drive. I have found out the hardway that custom boot discs need to be created with Easeus and then it was too late. I'm looking to switch to something easier.

    Trying to see if Paragon will work of if there are detailed instructions on how to do that. I have tried searching, but might have done a bad job looking, but can't seem to find info.

    Thanks.

    I bought the Backup and Recovery program, but having trouble adding drivers to the boot media creation disc. I installed the WAIK and am at the section to add drivers. I have to add Raid and USB for sure. I navigate to the drivers setion (file type is set to *.*) and no drivers are shown.

    They are all there when looking at the same location in Windows explorer.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    I put mine in manually - not using BMB at all.

    It may be paragon bmb is expecting .inf files.

    Of course. Always INF files. From the manual:

    In the opened dialog click Browse to find an .inf file of the required driver or manually set a path to it. In the Driver Details section you can see properties of the selected driver. Click OK when ready.

    Usually, you download the drivers in an EXE of ZIP file. If you open this archive and extract the files, you find a directory with the INF files.

    You could try this from cmd prompt:

    "path to driver.exe" /s /e /f "path to destination folder"
