I am trying to learn more about procedures for backing up "hardware" RAID 1\narrays. I am specifically interested in the functionality of the RAID\ncontroller on the Asus PSCH-LR motherboard, but I don't intend this question\nto be restricted to that case.\n\nFrom my experience with other hardware RAID controllers, I believe that\nperforming the steps below will not restore a hardware RAID 1 (mirrored)\narray.\n\n1. Make a Ghost or other image backup of one of two drives in a mirrored\narray.\n2. Remove both hard drives.\n3. Replace them with new drives of the same type as the first two.\n4. Restore the Ghost image to one of the drives.\n5. Tell the RAID controller utility to rebuild the array using the data from\nthe restored drive.\n\nIf this won't work, why not? It sure would be convenient if it worked.
