    I have both but don't know how to work them :(

    I know it should be self explanatory, but it's not.

    Drive Image gave me some error when I opened with Image explorer. I have no idea about ghost. i'm sick of reformatting and reinstalling

    Which version of the apps do you have. Are they the XP compatible versions?

    I didnt know Drive Image was compatible with XP, but I could be working on old news here.

    Try here, as I'm not exactly sure what you want to do, and this could probably give you a better idea of what to do than I could, and take less time.

    I havent ran Disk Image since the days of Win98 :D , so I'm not going to go there.

    Got any question that the site cant answer, post abck, and I'll do what I can.

    Later.

    ok i'll read it then get back to you....ohhhhhh one more thing....i'm thinking of going raid.......should I go with raid 1 (stripping) or stay with ata100? only have 2 40 gigs. and should they both be on the same ide cable or being on seperate cables ok?

    Well, to answer your question, I'd need to know what your wanting to achieve. For striping, this may achieve a speed boost, but it isnt fault-tolerant, and information on both disks is ruined if theres a serious error, or if the one of the drives fail. I'm not sure if you can stripe with a System volume on one of the disks. You would normally stripe if you have 3 or more disks. IMO, unless you have specific reasons, I would stay away from RAID-1.

    I have 2 40 gig drives that I use with a Promise ATA 100 PCI IDE controller, Non-RAID, and that seems to work for me just fine.

    I would *Definitely Not* put both HDs on the same cable. Same goes for sharing one of them with a CD-ROM. I would grab a PCI IDE controller for that.

    When two devices share the same cable, they both cannot be accessed at the same time, creating a significant performance problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Cool, thats what I recommend.

    BTW, what Highpoint do you have? Just curious, it might help me in another thread.

    DOH!

    What I meant to say is, is it a PCI IDE controller, or integrated into the MB?

    What are you having a question on?

    I've only used ghost a couple of times, so I'm not exactly an authority on the matter, but will do what I can.
