    I am a avid computer user and help run a forum much like this. I am constantly changing hardware and pushing things to their limits. Sometimes those limits cause corruption in my system. What I would like to know is if I can restore an image from a single drive to two or four drives in a raid 0 or a raid 0+1 array?

    This is mainly useful because I may decide to do a drive comparison in the future and I am sick of calling microsoft to explain that I am A computer power user who upgrades constantly :D.

    I noticed migrate easy and true image.

    Migrate easy sounds great if it will migrate from one drive to a external drive or DVDs and then onto the new array which may contain the original drive + another drive.

    I am thinking that migrate easy was really designed to go from one drive to another without the backup process.

    Well that is pretty much it. What do you recomend?

    It sounds like you need something like universal restore which allows you to restore images to a system with different hardware. I believe this is an add-on to trueimage workstation 9.

    Personally when i setup a raid in my system i simply restored an image to one drive using trueimage home then i used my raid utilities to split the data over both drives. However this method probably wouldn't work if other hardware had been majorly changed.
