    Default ex58-ud4 to ssd RAID 0

    Hi. I'm considering Raid 0 for the first time.

    I already have a 64gb SSD as C drive. I'm thinking of getting another (same model, same firmware, should be identical, old one only bought 4 months ago)

    I currently use Acronis to image my C drive, however I've been told it might not work with Raid configs.

    So my question is first, how can I image my single drive C drive and restore it to a Raid 0 setup?

    And second, I've had a look at the manual but don't totally understand how to set up the Raid. The motherboard bit looks easy (which stripe size though?), but then it assumed you're going to install windows from fresh so you need a raid driver. But what about someone who's going to restore an image first?

    Or should I preempt problems by installing raid drivers on my single drive OS, in the hope that when I restore the image to the dual SSD Raid 0 config it will just work? Sorry for beginner questions, but I think getting another 64gb will be more economic than purchasing a new 128gb and having the 64gb sit around doing nothing. Thanks a lot for reading

    ps - running win 7

    win7 and vista have the raid driver built in i think just update it later,save you hdd to an image,install the raid setup and install your image across the raid drives use the intel ports for best performance,as for stripe size idk much about this

    I explained here how to do what you want

    Also here, in case something above is confusing or I say things differently in one than the other that may confuse you

    Acronis works with RAID, but the last time I tried using (Many times) it would not restore to an already aligned disk, which is what you will need to do.

    Choose 128KB Stripe, and I suggest making your offset 1024kb (2048 in Diskpar)

    The above links will tell you how to enable RAID on your current setup, before making your image, that way when you restore to an array it will be bootable
