Best data back-up method? Tags: Hard Drives External Hard Drive Software Storage Last response: April 16, 2010 1:10 PM in Storage Share joshuatree April 15, 2010 9:43:34 PM What is your opinion about the differences and advantages of these automated backup systems? How much of a memory hog is each when running? 1) WD external hard drive "MyBook" with Smart software 2) Norton Ghost software to a 2nd internal drive 3) Acronis (sp?) software to a 2nd internal drive 4) RAID1 which I know synchronizes/mirrors (I would need the PC builder to set it up, but after that, will I ever need to adjust it again? Is it permanent?) Thanks More about : data back method gtvr a b G Storage April 16, 2010 1:10:21 PM #1 is best of these. It will probably let you schedule things, plus do incremental backups (not having to do the whole drive every time). #4 is just drive redundancy, but it doesn't get back deleted files, virus-trashed disks, etc. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
