Can the program hard disk clone by Miray span across hard drives in its backup mode?

I asked a related question but this one is specific to the Miray program.   In its backup mode, can it span to a target of more than one disk?  Does it reference this in its docs?

In my previous question i referenced cloning across a span of disks, but was reminded that then this wouldn't be a clone.

The only mention of something that might do what you are asking for is in the Professional edition "clone to virtual disk" assuming that might mean a stripe of small partitions.

With the cost of disks so low what's the problem with buying a similar (or larger) sized disk, and that would take out all the complexity and chances of things going wrong

What ever you do, back it all up FIRST

NO it only  spans if backing up to DVD/CDROM

a backup.. a clone is where it uses 2 drives and it copies starting at the mbr boot sector 0/0/0 and continues onto the end reading from one disk and writing to the other.  A backup then a restore from the backup is ONE way of cloning the disk but it is not a true clone. With a clone ( a full bit copy of one disk to another) you could restore deleted files and shadow copies .. with a backup/restore only the existing files will be present.

David, will hard Disk Clone span to the optical drive in the standard edition?  

I'm going to posts a new question for the following  issues; just to  everyone knows.
For a general mix of program&data files what kind of compression can I expect?   But really is a DVD backup practical  for more than a few gigs?  Aren't the disks kind of temperamental?

Thanks, Lewis.
