Imaging an identical drive in Windows XP Professional as a backup solution.
Posted on 2004-08-12
Was wondering if anyone has any input, or experience having two identical drives in a system, and using the second drive to image/mirror the first drive. This would be a backup solution in the case of drive failure. I know it doesn't cover in the case of OS corruption.
I would be using Norton Ghost, or something like that at night to image the primary drive.
In the case of the primary drive failure, I'm thinking all would need to be done is open the box, unplug the bad drive, and use the second, backup drive, and the primary drive.
Is there some flaw to this that I'm missing? ie: Windows not being happy with drive letters changing, etc.
