Is this possible in Windows 7? I know I can periodically sync my files using software like SyncBack but I'm looking for mirroring on the fly. Is there a similar method like RAID 1 that can achieve fast mirroring for external USB drives?

This question has been asked, and answered, on a second thread to which I will point you in a moment after I type enough such that this website stops converting my "trivial" answer into a comment which cannot be tagged as the answer to the original question.

The thread is here:

Can you link external USB hard drives in a RAID-style system?
