    I've been looking for a free backup app that supports Raid and having no luck. So any suggestions?

    Hardware or software RAID?
    Talking about just data backup, or drive imaging/cloning?

    No. It offers a free PE disk which is nice, But it doesn't support differential backups.

    My board has a raid controller. I would like to image the array.

    Paragon offered their product for free a couple of months ago so I installed it on my friend's laptop and it works...

    Macrium has worked for many onboard RAID controllers for me. Raid 0 image works just like single disk does. According to the topic, it fits the bill. If you have other specs not mentioned in the topic, maybe not.

    Macrium and Raid 0 were not cooperative on my friend's laptop, but that coud have been an isolated instance.


    @Sul, your sig is in my top 10 of all the sigs I've seen since the year 2000.

    I have used Macrium on many Raid 0 machines without instance. I know it won't be with all, but I have been very pleasantly suprised at how many it has worked with.

    I cannot take the credit for the sig really, it was Windchild who said in a thread that it sounds like I do things to my computer instead of with it. It was a very accurate way of describing me and what I do with my computer. I can only say that for me, it is absolutely true and thus I stole it from him ;) (I hope it also serves to warn/inform people when I post some weird stuff that I am not at all normal lol)
