I have my Windows 8 OS on an mSata SSD and an identical spare SSD mounted in a USB caddy. What is the best way to create a "mirror"/backup so that if my primary SSD fails I can just remove it and replace it with the spare one?
I am running Windows 8 and have Acronis True Image 2013 installed. I looked at the Non-Stop backup in Acronis True Image but it doesn't seem to keep an identical copy of the drive.
The question Disk mirror backup for Windows is marked as a duplicate but the duplicate no longer exists. The accepted Answer simply recommends Acronis True Image. However the continuous backup functionality in Acronis stores back history, rather than an actual mirror image.
There's also the question continuous mirror with external hard disk but this refers to Windows 7 which has Backup and Restore which is not available in Windows 8, which uses file History. File history is not what I want, I need to be able to simply swap the drive in if required. Not recover files
