RAID 0 imaging

Atola TaskForce can automatically detect a RAID 0 configuration, assemble and image such RAID array.

Assembling a RAID 0 with unknown configuration

1. Connect the drives to the TaskForce hardware unit's ports that are switched to the Source mode
2. In the left-side Task Menu, click the RAID button

3. In Select source device menu, select the drives and click Continue

Selecting source RAID drives

You can see key RAID configuration parameters at the top of the page:

Before you enter other values either manually or by applying Autodetection module results, the most commonly used values are displayed in the given fields.

The Autodetection module starts running immediately.

RAID 0 autodetection

Stage 1: TaskForce is reading data on the drives to identify the RAID type

NB To change the order of drives in the array, simply drag a drive to its new position. To remove a device from the current array, grab it and put it into the bin.

Stage 2: TaskForce goes through thousands of possible variants of RAID parameters.

Click Apply as soon as a Possible configuration tile appears

After you click Apply, TaskForce automatically applies the suggested configuration and checks the file system for partitions. At the bottom of the screen, a preview of the partitions is available.

Observing files and folders in the preview confirms the detected RAID 0 configuration is correct.

Imaging RAID 0 array

1. After RAID configuration is successfully applied, click Go to Image button to proceed with imaging

Go to image

Go to image

2. Select your target device or network folder and click Continue

3. Click the Start button to launch your imaging session

RAID imaging may take much longer than imaging a drive. You can optimize the imaging speed by using a fast target or a high-speed server.
