Experts,

I just bought two Seagate Plus Slim External HDD for data storage/backup for the house. In Windows 7 Pro, is there a way to setup replication so I don't have to manually copy the same file to both HDD for backup? Thanks

You can try setting them as mirrors, but I'm not sure if Windows 7 will support that for external drives.  Click Start, right-click on Computer, and go to Manage.  Click on "Disk Management" and see what options they give you.

Another option is to program your backup software to run concurrently on both drives.  So, you can set the backup to run to the first drive, and then a task will execute after that to copy it to the second drive.  Then you wont have to do it manually.  A good program for that is "FBackup", which supports the shadow copy service:
