I recently encountered the exact same problem. Unlike the folks that
replied to your post, I concluded that using the Vista Complete PC
Backup you cannot restore to a drive smaller than the one you backed
up. So it is indeed worthless to me. As that's a limitation I'm not
willing to live with.
Can anyone confirm or deny this?
What I ended up doing was, putting back my RAID array and restoring. I
then backed it up again with Acronis True Image, nuked the RAID array
again, and restored to a single drive.
That all went fine, but then Vista bluescreened me consistently on
boot. I assume because it was expecting the RAID array. So I had to
reinstall Vista anyway. *sigh*
