Having had a complete disk failure the other day, and spending two days getting everything back to normal (read: i had backups of data, but re-installing apps and a million little configs were the killer), I am looking for a way keep a clone of my disk in sync (or at least no more than a day behind).
On my server I already do this with a nightly rsync command to keep a copy of my primary drive and Jeff's post http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/2008/01/whats-your-backup-strategy.html made it sound like Acronis could do the same for me, but cloning isn't in the trial and reading the docs and digging around the menus i can only see full clone and incremental backup to a backup device. But a backup means i still need a drive to restore to. I just want to unplug the dead drive and run off the clone (and immediately order a new drive to become the new slave).
Can this be done with Acronis or other Windows software?
