I recently got my first build up and running and set it up with two WD 640gb drives in a Raid 0 Configuration. My question is. IS there some software that I can use to back up the Raid 0 Array to a 1.5 TB 3rd drive? BTW my OS is Windows 7.

Thanks
Joe

Copy and Paste
or
xcopy C:\ D:\ /e /v /r /y /k /c /d

We LUV XCOPY (as shown above).

You can re-direct output to a LOG file like this:

xcopy C:\ D:\ /e /v /r /y /k /c /d >log.txt

This is very useful if you need to maintain an audit trail
of changes e.g. when this command must be repeated
with regular frequency.

We've written a simple Batch file that works like this:

put [folder] [drive] [/l]


echo OFF
:: PUT.BAT
::
:: put [subfolder] [drive letter] [xcopy switch /l]
::
:: check for command line parameter
if "%1" == "" goto nofolder
if "%2" == "" goto nodrive
if "%2" == "/l" goto baddrive
IF "%2" == "/L" goto baddrive
set CURPATH=%~p0
echo ON
xcopy %1 %2:%CURPATH%%1 /s/e/v/d%3
echo OFF
goto done
::
::
:nofolder
echo Missing folder (first parameter)
goto done
::
::
:nodrive
echo Missing drive letter (second parameter)
goto done
::
::
:baddrive
echo Bad drive letter (second parameter)
goto done
::
:: can't turn off smilies here: next line should be a colon followed by "done" (no quotes, no space)
:D one
echo ON

Just......LOL


don't use freakin' xcopy. Get your hands on a copy of Norton Ghost. With it you can make a perfect image of the disks, and restore it in the event of a drive failure. It supports image compression, and several other handy features (like making the external HDD bootable, so you can boot from it to restore your image if something happens).

You can ghost to an internal or an external drive. Doesn't matter.
