Restoring RAID-0 data to new disks
I have Acronis True Image Home 2011 (update 3, built 6942) installed on a PC running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
My boot disk is a 120GB SSD. All is well there.
However, I keep most of my apps and data on a RAID-0 (2x 500GB Seagate SATA disks = 1TB RAID-0). That 1TB is proving to be insufficient and I need to expand. I've bought 2 brand new 2TB WD Caviar Black disks I intend to put into a 4TB RAID-0 and use that as my new data drive.
I've got Acronis doing regular backups of the current RAID-0 onto an external disk, but I've never had to recover anything before and I'm nervous. Is it as simple as swapping out the old disks for the new disks and telling Acronis to "recover" it once the new RAID is set up? Will I encounter any problems given these are different, larger drives I'm recovering to?
Thanks in advance for your help. I want to do this right the first time and make sure I'm totally prepared! :)
