Yeah, that is RAID, can only be done with internet drives..
I believe it is Raid 5 - Mirrors the HDD onto another HDD, so if one fails you have the other
Hello, thanks for reading my post.
I want to store my digital photos and music. Especially for the photos, having them all on just one HD seems kind of risky....
I read that there are setups to write the same data simultaneously to two or more external hard drives - as far as I understood it, both show up as one in your gui, but when you add/remove data to that 'one' drive it writes/reads/erases it from both, simultaneously, so that you essentially have duplicate drives.
Now I cannot find any information online except about RAID setups, which seem to be for internal drives.
What I read about might have been for macs - I don't remember.
Is this possible, for either a mac or a pc?
Basically, I want to have a continuously updated backup of my backup drive, and maybe even a backup of the backup. It seems like I could also do this by using syncing software to just make one the backup of the other. Any ideas on how to do this, via any method, would be greatly appreciated.
Also, which would be safer: two or three linked HD's as described above, with their constant updatability but associated risks, or one backup hd and a DVD burner, with which I would completely back up the one HD onto 15-20 DVDs every two-three months?
Thanks again for your time!!!
