View Full Version : a good back up program that does...?

First why dont you just run a batch file to copy the contents of the folder you are saving to where you want your backup.

Second you could use hardware mirroring to guarantee a copy of everything in case a hard drive poops out.

Third I have heard of "ghosting" but I dont know if it is an active solution or if it is used as on-demand to copy info.

good luck

Why don't you use a raid (level 1)setup?
