Mirror Hard Drives
Mounting a mirror hard disk is the process of creating an exact replica, byte by byte, of a working system volume.
This is an important task that computer users must understand, as it allows for data redundancy and security for important files, whether personal or operational.
There are many software packages with simple procedures for creating mirrors of units, and to achieve this requires only a couple of clicks with the mouse.
Run the R-Drive Image program from the location where it is installed.
Click the “Create image” button, located in the top section of the main program window.
Select the unit you want to mirror from the list of available units and press the “Next” button.
Select a destination for the new mirror in the navigation advantage and click the “Next” button. This can be placed on any media, such as a CD, DVD or other hard drive, depending on the size you choose to do so.
Click the “Next” button on the “Image Mode” page again and leave the default options marked. These options are for advanced users who want to create specialized mirrors on RAID arrays or NAS servers.
If you wish, enter a password for the new mirror and click the “Next” button.
Press the “Start” button to start creating the hard disk mirror. This process will take from minutes to several hours depending on the speed and amount of information on the hard drive being configured.
A dialog box will appear to inform you when the process has been successfully completed.
