Data Recovery / Backup Software to Compliment my Raid-1 Setup
Posted on 2005-04-20
I recently bought a new computer configured with a Raid-1 setup and want a way to backup the drives from time to time.
Previous to using a Raid-1, I had been using Symantec's GoBack for recovering a few files that may have been recently overwritten, and Symantec Ghost for creating entire images of my drives in case of bigger problems. My problem is that I have had nothing but problems trying to get the software to work with my Raid-1. Ghost doesn't recognize my drives when I try to recover them (found that one out the hard way), and GoBack causes my computer to crash during startup. As I continue on my quest to find solutions for this software, I was curious...
1) What is the best software out there for recovering older files that may have been overwritten with newer version (Like GoBack)?
2) What is the best software out there for backing up my data to an external drive (I have a 500GB External LaCie HD) OR to DVD (Dual Layer Support would be a plus)?
3) Anyone know how to solve my current problems with this Symantec software?
Questions 1+2 are most important, 3 is just a bonus for me.
