We have installed a new VMware vSphere 5 Essentials server. The VM image is installed to the USB boot drive and the server boots to VMWare. (There are not virtual servers configured yet)

In the event that the USB drive becomes damaged/corrupt, I would like to back this up and store a spare with the server for speed of recovery.

Can anyone advise on the best method and policy of backing up the USB drive?
