Windows 7: Macrium and RAID

11 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Macrium and RAID

I currently have RAID1 and use
windows backup and store the
system images on another internal
HDD. Like others, I have had some
issues with windows backup and
would like to try Macrium. The
research that I've done so far has
given me mixed information, some
things I read say that it will work fine
with RAID and others say it won't.
Any comments, suggestions? Anyone
currently using Macrium with RAID 1?
Any help would be appreciated.

Hanna1, Thank you for the reply.
I have already been to the Macrium
site and read the info in the link
you posted. I have found other info
that there could be issues which is
why I asked in my post if there was
anyone currently using Macrium
with RAID 1. I'm just trying to see
if anyone else is using the RAID 1
and Macrium combo, and if so are
there any issues I need to be aware
of. Thank you for taking the time to
post the link. Any comments are

Macrium Free vs Macrium Pay
I am using the free version. I have visited the site and read what the pay version does. As far as I can tell the incremental backups is really the only thing that seems worthwhile. I was just curious if anyone has tried the pay version and found a feature that made it worth paying for. Thanks,
