Cobian Backup should get everything onto an external..

Why are you looking to backup the OS on a RAID 1? The odds are really low, that two drives will die at the same time...

If anything I would do the initial install including fav. programs, then make an image of it, back up your data to a third drive that is dedicated to backups only...

This way if you take a dive and both drives die at the same time, you can replace them reinstall the image, and pull the data off the external drive.... 2hrs later your back up and running.

Just an opinion, take it as a grain of salt :)

Drive image XML, Ultimate boot CD, bart PE... some free software that you might find helpful.

Off site backup maybe? (fire-theft will take both drives..)

by cmatthews In reply to .02 cents

I used to like ghost for this because of Ghost Explorer.. getting at data within the archive was easy.

But for newbies, finding dos-mode USB drivers that work can be a pain in the butt. E-Sata is what I use with Acronis to do full backups.
