Raid 0 Backup

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

  1. Copy and Paste
    or
    xcopy C:\ D:\ /e /v /r /y /k /c /d
  2. > 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)
    :done
    echo ON

  3. I've partitioned my Raid 0 Array into C: D: & E:
  4. 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).

    Nice :)

    Batch file
    xcopy C:\ F:\C /e /v /r /y /k /c /d >logc.txt
    xcopy D:\ F:\D /e /v /r /y /k /c /d >logd.txt
    xcopy E:\ F:\E /e /v /r /y /k /c /d >loge.txt

    Norton Ghost works too, as presented.

    Would if I have a internal Drive?
  7. You can ghost to an internal or an external drive. Doesn't matter.
