Restoring, on the other hand, can be a problem since some older backup software can't detect a RAID to restore to. I use Acronis True Image Home to make backups. I used to have a RAID 1 and it had no problems backing up or restoring to RAID. http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage... If you are looking for free software, you might want to try Reflect. I haven't tried it on a RAID, but you can try a test run of it. http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx m 0 l Branden a b G Storage September 26, 2011 2:20:43 PM i backup my most important and unreplaceable files on my 3tb raid5 drive to a 1tb raid1 nas box using syncback. the nas i use is the dlink dns-323, it's slow and unsuitable for using as a network drive but works fine as place to automatically backup files to nightly. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
