A client has a VAIO laptop with an Intel ICH9M-E SATA controller. A RAID 0 array has been setup with two drives.
I want to use Acronis True Image or similar imaging utility to image the partition on the array. ATI only supports hardware RAID, not firmware or software RAID.
I know this setup is not software RAID, but I am not sure if it is considered hardware or firmware RAID. It has a RAID utility accessible during boot like a true RAID controller setup, but the ICH9M-E is a SATA controller, not a RAID controller. Can someone enlighten me as to the difference between the two, and what the RAID configuration in this VAIO qualifies as?
Thanks for the help.
