    I'm using the 10.0 home version. I recently had a problem restoring a raid0 drive. I wasn't able to actually. And I'm just wondering on the steps i should take.

    I should say some time ago i was able to restore this type of drive but i had to do the following steps.

    1. Recreated and formatted my raid0 drive in the bios.
    2. Then formatted again with windows cd and installed windows.
    3. Then installed Acronis 10.0
    4. Then ran recovery cd and installed my backup.


    I'm just wondering if there is a shorter way of doing this? Like after recreating the drive in the bios do i have to go through all that windows install stuff?

    Thanks all..

    Nope you shouldn't have to. Based on your 1-4 steps you should have omitted steps 2 and 3.

    1. Recreated and formatted my raid0 drive in the bios.
    2. Then formatted again with windows cd and installed windows.
    3. Then installed Acronis 10.0

    4. Then ran recovery cd and installed restored my backup from an external storage device.
