The minimum number of drives for RAID 5 is three. You might take a look at this thread: Storage and Performance Benefits In addition to space and performance benefits, RAID was also designed to improve redundancy sometimes referred to as fault tolerance or failover protection , which ensures that data remains accessible and available if a part of the array fails. The RAID is hardware dependent. Registration is free and easy!

35681: Acronis Backup: Restoring to Dissimilar Hardware with Universal Restore

What’s the best way of setting up the RAID-1 array on the new controller, recovering the image backup, and ending up with a system that is bootable from the array on the new controller? Or to put in simpler terms, store the same data in multiple locations or acrknis multiple disks.

Redundancy is one of the biggest strengths of RAID and something that is essential to any good backup strategy. A potential disadvantage of RAID 1 is that you must double the number of drives used to obtain the desired storage capacity. Physical-to-physical, physical-to-virtual and virtual-to-physical machine migration.

Just like the ones mentioned above, these levels and types offer varying levels of restkre and RAID array data recovery possibilities.

With a first-rate backup application like Acronis True Image, you can create accurate, reliable and secure backups quickly and easily. Universal Restore will search this folder with subfolders for the raif driver automatically: For more information see: Skip to main content.


And as with more commonly used RAID levels, proprietary and non-standard types suffer from the same limitations if drives in the array fail, then data on aronis disks might be lost as well.

I decided to try Adaptec again maybe a year ago and started slapping myself in the face. Get This Featured White Paper: Also you can specify the target partition size here: If you have Acronis Backup Do you already have an account?

Skip to main content. There are also some occasions when data is distributed across a RAID using a combination of hardware and software.

There are a few different ways you can back up data from your RAID to ensure you have access to it if the array fails or is lost. Regardless of the number of drives used in the RAID, the computer to which the array attaches sees the entire setup as a single ordinary disk drive. Login Not a member?

Modern RAID works essentially the same way. Back in the days when hard drives were far less spacious and much more expensive, manufacturers introduced RAID as a way of combining multiple, less-expensive hard drives into an array that provided higher capacity and better performance with a single volume. Regarding transferring of a domain controller: Detailed instructions can be found in the Acronis True Image 9.

change from SCSI to SATA-RAID 1 with universal restore? | Wilders Security Forums

This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. If there are proper NIC drivers present in the folder with the drivers, Acronis Universal Restore will copy them into the restored system and will schedule their installation on Windows boot-up.


Use WinPE-based media if the device is available in Windows but Linux-based media does not detect it. Nevertheless, if a power surge or other physical disaster destroys more than two drives in the array, a RAID recovery or rebuild is not possible.

Acronis Universal Restore technology provides an efficient rais for hardware-independent system restoration by replacing the crucial Hardware Abstraction Layer HAL and mass storage device drivers.

The reason you should never consider RAID used for primary storage as a backup is simple: You may also be interested in this white paper: If, after the restore, the machine does not boot correctly, please boot in Safe Mode hit F8 and check the drivers in Windows Device Manager. Miraculously the Acronis restore also seems to have allocated the drive letters correctly I had 4 partitions, C, J, K and L It really worked very well and was remarkably painless!
