2TB My Book RAID setup, restore to new/replacement


#1

Hi all…

Ive no experience with this product myself… a friend has just asked for help… apparently he’s used a “Western Digital My Book 2TB Mirror Edition”  in RAID1 for the last number of months to backup his primary computer (containing 2 or 3 smaller older harddrives…)

He wants me to come by this weekend with a new 1TB drive and slap it in to replace the older drives…

What do I have to do to restore his from this RAID system (and its backup of various harddrives) onto his new 1 larger drive?

This a Windows XP Home (probably SP3)  Machine…

thanks,

Brett

have done some more poking around the site, and while I sitll can’t find an answer to this question in the knowledge base anywhere… I thought I should mention this is the ‘Mirror Edition’ and he’s running whatever stock software came with it…

thanks,
