View Full Version : RAID or another solution ?

I want to save a file to multiple drives, simultaneously. RAID can join multiple drives, as far as I know, you can't have a temporary RAID setup, whereas, you have an external drive that is attached temporarily, how ever long temporarily is, save the file which is saved to the RAID, when you don't want the drive to be attached to a RAID you can stop the RAID, whenever, and it acts like a regular drive.

Depends on which level of raid your looking at level 1 is disk mirroring why not try duplexing

There are external multi-drive enclosures that support RAID arrays. However keep in mind the RAID is not a backup. It only protects you from drive hardware failures (assuming you are using a fault tolerant RAID level).

You could possibly use disk mirroring at a software level in Windows under Manage/Disk Management.

Quick and easy to create mirrors then break them when no longer required.
