How does acronis work with RAID?? I have a hardware RAID 5.
Are you asking whether TI works on a RAID 5 system, or how does it's algorithm work in implementing a RAID image?
What version of TI are you asking about? TI 11 currently does not work with most Intel RAID configurations (Nvidia RAIDs seem to work). TI 10 currently has better overall RAID support.
If TI does work with your hardware RAID setup then it will treat it as a regular drive (just like a single drive). I've tested it many times on RAID 0 and RAID 1 setups (never on RAID 5, though).
If your using ATI 9.1, then it fully supports any level of hardware RAID may it be 0,1,0+1,5,etc. since it is configured in the hardware level and acronis still sees it as one logical drive and can be backed up.
FYI 9.1 can also backup and restore to different levels of hardware RAIDS. 0->5, 5->1, etc. since its the hardware's responsibility to distribute the data amongst the drives not the software.
Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup software
All recent versions of Acronis True Image product line supports all level of RAID setups including RAID 5. Please note that Windows Dynamic Drives are supported only by server versions of Acronis True Image (Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Windows and Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server).
Please note that additional drivers and fixes for Acronis Bootable Rescue Media RAID support would be included in the next build that would be released in the nearest future.
