Can anyone tell me if you can back Raid 0 hard drive configuration to one external hard drive using Nortons Ghost ver 10? or do I need to have a 4 hard drive configuration?

I believe ghost would treat a raid 0 array (if it's a hardware array) as a single drive. One your machine posts and initializes the array, the drives act as a single physical device.

Once the array initializes and OS will treat multiple drives as a single device. Just make sure the drive you're ghosting the image to is big enough for the combined size of your array.

Look at it this way. You won't do any harm in trying it. It'll either create the image on the new drive or it won't. But your original data will not be in any danger short of a hardware failure.

Thanks for the reply. If I have to use the backup, will ghost see both drives and replace the image back as RAID 0 or will it replace the image onto one disk?

raid 0 is hardware configured.. Software such as OS's and ghost will only see the raid 0 setup as a single drive.

You might try creating 2 partitions on the single drive,and use the clone function in ghost. It should see the partitions as 2 drives.DOUG

There is a big difference between having two drives and having a RAID array.

If using a hardware RAID configuration, the disk controller manages the RAID configuration and presents the operating system (even at the DOS level) with a logical hard drive that the OS can't tell isn't just a hard disk. The disk controller manages the conversion of disk reads/writes to the separate disk devices within the RAID set. Of course, you need a RAID disk controller that has this functionality built in. In this case, any disk imaging will work since the OS thinks it's just looking at a physical disk.

If using software RAID such as that offered in Windows Server's dynamic disk configurations you won't be able to use a disk imaging tool to image the RAID volume. Attempts to restore also won't re-create the RAID volume. With software RAID you need to first re-create the RAID configuration first and then restore the filesystem to the volume.

The newer Intel raid controller will rebuild even a raid 0 array.Ghost sees the 2 partitions as seperate hard drives.

Why not ask Symantec, their tech support is very good. Only took me a few minutes to find this.
Norton Save & Restore and Norton Ghost 10.0 support the following hardware RAID levels:

RAID level 0
RAID level 1
RAID level 5
Norton Ghost 9.0 supports the following hardware RAID levels:

RAID level 0
RAID level 5
Norton Save & Restore and Norton Ghost 10.0/9.0 do not support any software RAID levels or nested RAID levels, such as RAID level 0+1.
