  1. System Backup before RAID 0


    Hey Guys,
    I am planning on doing a RAID 0 with my two 1TB HDD's and I was wondering if a system image backup onto an external HDD will work for restoring my OS, programs, and files to the newly raided drives.

    :)

  2. Lost one of 2 RAID 0 System SSD after Windows updates

    I had been using 2 SSD with RAID 0 running Windows 10 for 2+ years. About 2 or 3 weeks ago, after the Windows 10 update (I think it was since Dec 12 update) one of my RAID 0 SSD is shown as error on POST. Motherboard still recognized the HDD but it can't
    join the RAID 0 array. Since I can't boot the system, I can't tell what is the exact built/version I was running before the update and after the update.

    Any real help would be greatly appreciated.

    Moved from: Windows / Windows 10 / Windows update, recovery, & backup.

    Setting up RAID on existing Win10 machine

    What kind of RAID are you asking about: RAID 0 (Striping) or RAID 1 (mirroring)? Or some other kind?

    RAID 0 is supposed to improve performance, but in my experience, it doesn't.

    RAID 1 (mirroring) is *not* a backup solution. RAID 1 uses two or
    more drives, each a duplicate of the others, to provide redundancy, not backup. It's used in situations (almost always within corporations, not in homes) where any downtown can't be tolerated, because the way it works is that if one drive fails the other
    takes over seamlessly.

    Although some people thing of RAID 1 as a backup technique, that is *not* what it is, since it's subject to
    simultaneous loss of the original and the mirror to many of the most common dangers threatening your data--severe power glitches, nearby lightning strikes, virus attacks, theft of the computer, etc. Most companies that use RAID 1 also have a strong external
    backup plan in place.

    System Backup before RAID 0

    Raid 0 means it writes data to both disk but not the same data so each disk only has parts of the data that's why if one disk dies you loose everything. So you would need to image both disks while they are not being used. Unless you have very specific use for raid it's a waste of disks with on a few benefits

  5. I've already done my research on raiding drives and I know the pros and cons of them. Currently only one HDD is being used. My motherboard came with software to raid drives but the system wont recognize them as raided. I have the option before the OS boots to enter a raiding tool but it is going to wipe and reformat both drives. My question is will a system image from one drive be able to restored onto the newly raided drives?
