ServerMagic might - Also, just break the raid and swap a disk out.  (Ok, less than ideal, but an option).  There's always tape.  And you could try PowerQuest DeployCenter (Now a symantec product, I believe).  DriveImage also (actually it's new version is part of Deploy CEnter).

umm.. the only feature I am looking for it IDR, but it seems like it's not part of the BACKUP exec 9.1, try to install it in on xp workstation, that feature didn't seem to be enable. by the way, has anyone try True Image Server 8.0 for Windows from Acronis? http://www.acronis.com/download/trueimageserver/  is it any good?

thx

From Veritas Technical Support:

There has been quite a few problems happening with Windows XP service pack 2.Hence we initially suggest you to follow the technotes below,

[Important information regarding Backup Exec for Windows Servers and Windows XP Service Pack 2 ]
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270139.htm

[Push installations of Backup Exec and/or the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) to Windows XP Service Pack 2 systems fail with a "connect to server" error.]
http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270144.htm

[Backup or restore operations may fail with "0xa000848c - Unable to attach to one of the drives." and "Unable to attach to \\SERVER" after Service Pack 2 has been applied to a Windows XP system. ]
 http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/270126.htm

You can perform the IDR in a  non-server environment also.
You can refer the following document which explains how to use IDR on Windows XP systems,

[How to create Intelligent Disaster Recovery diskettes for Windows 2003/XP using Backup Exec 9.x ]
 http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/268791.htm

We hope this resolves your query.Feel free to revert back for any additional queries.

Hope this helps you,

True Image server 8.0 works like a charm. but haven't had any extensive test on it, but it seems to work pretty well.
