Having just suffered a corrupted hard drive, I think it's time I invested in such software!
What I want is software that is easy to use and works automatically. I have two hard drives on my motherboard, set up on different raid arrays (I know that I should have asked the teccies in the shop to have set the drives up on one array to mirror, but I did not and I would rather not lose the use of my PC further. Besides I gradually trying to become a DIY PC user and sort stuff out for myself!). One hard drive is 80Gb and the other 40Gb. The 80Gb is partitioned into a C and D drive, the 40 Gb is simply labelled as E. Everything important, including the way I have set up my OS and everything else is on C, so I want an exact copy of C on E; a copy that always updates automatically, whenever I work. I understand I need to create a "mirror image" image of my drive C, so would like someone far cleverer and knowledgable than me to post some advice on what software to choose!
I can recall at least 1 forum member who had difficulty rebuilding a mirrored array after a disk failure.
I also would recommend TrueImage as I also use it myself and have used it to restore my system after a failed hard drive. However it has to be started and run and it doesn't work constantly in the background.
From personal experience I would also suggest using another backup method as well for data using CDR/DVD/Tape.
