|So, here is the issue:|
I want to have a backup of my internal HD.
Obviously, I have multiple options:
1) One of them is to set up a RAID 1 array in my PC (I'd need to buy another HD to do this). The issue with this is that I already have an external HD--PLUS I'd like to be able see the files on another PC. Also, I am not sure how I can move from my existing 1 disk configuration to a RAID 1 without having to install XP again...etc..etc..
2) The second option would be to run incremental backups at specific intervals. I visualize this as copying all the files to the external HD. Now, my question is: In the event that the internal HD dies, how users backup all the windows os data? I have games that I just can't backup their files. They are somehow connected to the OS stuff and therefore, wouldn't work just by restoring their files.
So, after a fresh windows install on the "new" internal HD, how is it possible to copy all the files/programs/settings, etc..such that everything works the way it was working?
