Currently I have 4 HDDs.
Disk1: C:System and D:Programs
Disk2 - Data1, Disk3 - Data2, Disk4 - Data3.
Have 4 disks for my backups. Connect via USB Extrenal Drive Controller.
I use my partition manager software to clone Disk1, so backup is bootable.
I use SyncToy in Echo mode to backup the 3 data disks.
This works fine, depending on how often I do my backups of course. Takes a bit of time, especially cloning disk1, as everything is copied each time.
Question is: Assuming I have enough disk bays (or networking a 2nd PC), am I better or worse off putting my in-use and backup drives in the PC together and using mirrored dynamic disks? In theory, apart from a slight degredation in performance, I should always have a backup disk instantly available.
My motherboard does not have RAID facilities.
