Need advice and help Tags: Western Digital HD Storage Product Last response: September 11, 2007 11:02 PM in Storage Share xringx September 11, 2007 10:47:03 PM I have a 250gig WD Cavier HD seen here : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I have taken to scanning lots of documents etc and saving on hard drive. In the past, if I had to reformat the HD, I really didnt care, but now I do. I have know very little of the different Raids, and even less on how the work and to set up. I want to back up my HD so if I lose a HD, I have another ready to go. I also see people using small Raptor drives. Why is this? I have about $150 to spend on this project and need advice. I dont know if software plays into this, but I do have Drive Image 7... never used it.. Thanks for any advice More about : advice xringx September 11, 2007 11:02:38 PM Ok, I did a bit of studying. I dont need raid for speed, just data protection. I have lost data by having a HD fail and also with me installing newhardware/drives etc causing a reformat. In a perfect world I would want something I could boot from if necessary (although I can see issues with new hardware drivers, etc) that also has all my "stuff" on it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
