Backup question: I have a Dell 5810 Workstation:
Drive C: Toshiba SSD 1 TB
Drive D: Samsung SSD 1 TB
Drive R: Raided 1 4 TB brand new Western Digital Black drives
I am sure that my Drive C: is failing. I have only ever backed up my data in a folder by folder method. I have current backups utilizing this method. However I wish to backup the entire C: drive just in case. Since I have 4TB free in the raid configuration is my best option to simply use Windows 10's backup software to copy everything on c: to the 4TB raid? When I replace this computer I "probably" have everything I need on drives external to the computer, but things can be forgotten and Ii want to have the best backup while the C: drive is still readable and writable. The new computer I choose will have the ability to install the two raided drives to retrieve files I might have forgotten about. So, is backup a reasonable choice? Note: I do not wish to troubleshoot this computer any further. I have had TWO motherboards replaced in the last week and am unwilling to go any further to diagnose it. I only want to oreserve my data and then never turn it on again.
