I have a situation. I use 2 1TB drives as RAID 0 for my C drive, but when I make a windows image backup to a single drive, I got an I/O error which means that the drive I'm trying to back up can't be bigger than 2TB. Because windows can handle drives bigger than 2 TB, but the Windows backup utility won't, that's because of limitation of VHD file that can be exceeded 2T.
I did some research, there are 2 ways to do it.
- re-format the RAID as 512B / sector instead of 4K
- Create multiple partitions in that RAID 0.
- 3rd party tools , like Acronis.
Is there other way to do it? Is there any problem when I restore the Image backup RAID 0 from a single drive?
