1. The startup version of R-Drive Image does work with USB 3.0.
2. The Windows version works with disks through Windows, so if the current Windows installation supports USB 3.0, R-Drive Image can work with it, too.

Using a StarTech.com 2 Port PCI Express SuprerSpeed USB 3.0 Card (Part # PEXUSB3S2) in a Dell Precision T5400 Workstation and booting off a startup disk for R-Drive Image 4.7 4738 I cannot see my connected USB 3.0 WD My Passport 1TB (P/N WDBACX0010BBk-00). If R-Drive is supporting USB 3.0 I figure I'd atleast see the drive. If I plug into the native USB 2.0 port of the workstation is does show up using the boot disk. Of course using it through R-Drive in Win 7 x64 works as expected. I suspect the USB 3.0 support is not as broad as implied in the first reponse to this post.
