    Default How to backup soft RAID0

    I installed openSUSE 11.1 on RAID0 stripe provided by kernel and not by BIOS raid. I tried recently to back it up with partimage but i couldn't do it. So i tried to discover these raid partitions with dmraid but it has only options to discover BIOS RAID's. How can i back these partitions??

    I have no idea what is causing your problem, but you might try my favorite tool

    g4u - Harddisk Image Cloning for PCs

    Thanks but i don't like an idea of not having my BACKUP locally. I don't have fast connection so it would take years to restore Thanks anyway

    g4u has the capability of executing your backup to any local attached or remote storage(using practically any protocol but FTP and SMB are probably of most interest).

    As a backup app, I find it's the most flexible solution I've found for *NIX systems.
