I have an external drive that I only turn on when I am ready to do a backup. I want to put it in my tower, but I don't want it to be turned on all the time so it will not go bad. I do a backup probably only once every other week. It was suggested that I could just use a switch, but I would rather have some software that could do it for me and backup at the same time. Any suggestions?
