I had a Raid 0 array on my desktop and lost one of the drives. I replaced them with a new pair and want to creae a Raid 1 volume.  Hopefully to avoid this mess I am in now in the future.

Can I take the Acronis Raid 0 image and restore it to a Raid 1 configuration?

Thanks,
Jim

Yes. I have used Acronis for many things in the past including what you are trying to do. I have used it to migrate physical servers to virtual and vice versa, Re-imaged a server that was running RAID5 to a new server running RAID10. As long as the physical hardware remains the same for you (since your running the home edition) that fact that the volume is now mirrored rather than striped makes no difference.

Thanks for your encouraging response.  I took awhile because I had to headache a BartPE rescue disk with my drivers.  It did work successfully.
Thanks

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.
