I have a storage drive that needs to be backed up in case the drive fails... my OS is not on this drive... I was thinking RAID 1 might be what I needed, but everywhere I read, everyone says NO to RAID 1 backup...
So what I'm asking is if there is a good way to backup this storage drive that's 3TB? I'm also constantly removing and adding things to this drive so this backup needs to be something automatically done and easily recoverable.
Some things that doesn't matter for this backup:
If I accidentally delete a file, thats fine since its just my fault
if it gets destroyed by natural cause/theft... I have other things to worry about
if a power surge kills 2 drives at the same time, can't that be protected by UPS or surge protectors
Thanks in advance
I need a Windows7 software that automatically syncs my 3 TB storage drive and a 3 TB backup drive.
changes to the storage drive = changes to the backup drive
if storage drive dies, I can rename my backup to storage and continue to use my data
