Which backup utility?
Posted on 2003-03-30
I have a computer that has two harddisks--both 40GB. I want to backup the entire content of the first drive to the second so that if my first drive crashes, I can replace it with the second one. Currently I am using Seagate Disc Wizard 2003 for copying the entire contents of the first drive to the second. I have also tried another utility--Casper XP.I want to do this kind of backup only once in a month or so.
I also want to perform daily backup of my data files (which I am currently using Backup Magic). I am perfectly satisfied with Backup magic and my daily backup.
What I want to know is that, whether it is possible to completely copy the entire contents of the drive containing the OS to another drive while the system is running. If it is possible, will simply switching the disks will work in case the first drive crashes (seagates says it will...). In that case which is the best utility for doing that Seagates Disc Wizard 2003, Casper XP or is there something better...
