NAS RAID?

Recommended Posts

joenspa    26

I need to keep at least 2 categories/folders of things on my network;

1) Application archives

2) Old job archives

I want them on my network so I can access them from any of my computers at home or when I'm out of town. I have one drive attached now and it works as I want it. The problem is this is important data and I want a backup of it too. It's getting tougher to make a back up of this drive when I return home. I am wondering if there is a cheap and simple way to attach 2 drives to my Airport Base Station and have them mirrored. Has anyone done this? Can I format them this way and use a hub? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

you need a RAID 1 USB case. put two drives in a box, set the RAID to 1, plug it into the airport, and then format it. done. there are lots of options for cases.

Thanks for the info John. It also hit me that I could attach 2 drives and then use Super Duper with the Smart Update feature to clone the drive. I'm saving your post but going to give this cheaper solution a try first.

Thanks again!
