8O Can someone walk me through settingup a second hard drive as backup:I have a IDE 160MD and I'd like to install a second possibly sata drive to use as a mirror in case of failure of original-where do I begin and what programs do I need?(System: Asus A8N-SLI MB, 2xGeoforce 6600GT videocards, Maxtor 160MB HD Sony Combo drive)
Why a mirror?? why not simply backup of important files? Do you need to have your computer running 24/7 or the world would stop? I don't think so. Don't waste storage space by backing up apps and game you already have install CDs for.
Get a big 300 gigs HDD, an USB 2.0 enclosure and use it to store some backup, or to move files across computer... much more valuable that having a whole drie doing nothing else that waiting for the main drive to fail, which may never happen anyway...
