I’ve been saying it for years, but have recently started. I should have created a RAID the last upgrade of my PC, I definitely will as soon as I can. My motherboard allows RAID, so why not. Problem is, you have to RAID when installing the OS, so when it’s time to go to Windows 7, I’ll do it. That will take care of my OS/program drive.
The next best thing for now is syncing all my info to an external eSATA drive. I got a great price at Buy.com on a 2GB Fantom drive. Using Allway Sync, I’m syncing all data, FTP server that includes all my websites and some program file settings. This includes photos, music, videos, etc. Allway sync can be set to automatically sync many different ways. It doesn’t really slow the system much since I’m running maximum memory, but using Windows “Scheduled Tasks” I’ve set it to sync at night while I’m sleeping.
