I just bought 2 1TB drives. I am looking to make them identical so that if I lose one I could just swap the other one in. Is there a way to do that? I do not need my backup to be able to "roll back" to a previous version, I simply want something to backup all of my important files.

Would I be thinking RAID or not? I've never used RAID before, but am more than willing to learn how to!

Thanks for your help!

Same idea, if the HDDs are the WD brand I would use the specific Acronis WD Edition software for it`s support.
