Hello,

Knowing that HDs will always fail, I backup all my photos to an external HD and DVDs. I wanted to know is there an easy way to simply clone the external USB drive to another? I could have bought one with RAID but decided to just get a single drive. Any other best practice ideas?

If it's used only for storing files, then why not simply copy all files to the new external drive?

That is an option, maybe using a software like Goodsync to keep both drives in sync. Any best practices would be appreciated.
