    Using two different Intel Motherboard D875PBZ with the Intel 80201ER 2 port Sata controller appears to work properly in the sense that True Image sees the RAID drive set as a single disk and creating an image of the first NTFS partition onto the second Extended FAT32 data partion.

    However, when you attempt to do the same thing with the Intel D845PBeT2 mobo with the Silicone image controller, TI shows each of the two drives as separate accessible volumes...

    c: nfts main
    d: data
    e: ntfs main
    f: data

    assuming the first NTFS is the partition I would like to image, and writing that image to the first occurance of the data partition, d: data, TI reports the image was successfully created...

    Boot the OS and voila, the image written to the d: data volume is gone....

    I'm using the TI build 878....

    What gives, and I'm assuming the troubles I'm experiencing are going to result in not being able to restore an image or some other nasty thing..

    Any comments to clear up my confusion are highly welcomed..

    Hello andrewgroup,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    We are really sorry for the inconveniences.

    First of all, could you please tell what version of Acronis True Image you use? The strange thing is that Acronis hasn't released 878 build, is it just a typo? Also please note that under Windows Acronis True Image uses Windows drivers. It means that it should work under Windows with all the disks that are available under Windows.

    The Sil3112 is supported by the latest builds of Acronis True Image (791 and 92:cool: so there shouldn't be any problems. Could you please describe what RAID type you use: RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID 0+1?

    Thank you.
