    Want a Raid1 With a backup drive added??

    WD has a version of Acronis for free to use. Does Acronis have a bootable system Image? I'm still trying to pick an external hd. Leaning towards WD because of the free software. I'll look at the Macrium. It really has to be simple so I can explain to the young lady how to use it. Thanks

    Want a Raid1 With a backup drive added??

    I feel the raid1 will protect against hd failure and a system image and regular backups will keep everything in a safe place. Let me try and explain. When I first put the system together for the lady I just used Raid1. Well sure as hell one drive failed but the raid1 kept me in the game with...

    KillDisk Pro ?

    Hello and Merry Christmas to all! I am wiping a hard drive using Killdisk Pro. After the 1TB disk is cleared to zeros and the disk is refreshed I show 80h and unallocated. Ctrl+S shows zeros on both of them. Why is there both the 80hn and unallocated? My next question is after I install...
