I am revamping the way I do things and I need to put in place a decent and EASY ( as in for idiots) to use back up and storage system for my editing PC. My current system is labour intensive, time consuming and a general pain in the ass. I currently have a variety of external hard drives which I plug in when I remember or can be bothered and back up photos and various other items deemed worthy of saving.
What I would like to set up is some kind of system that automatically backs up the entire system and then automatically backs up the changes I have made each night and automatically mirrors the hard drive onto another so I have two copies.
I think I am after a raid kind of setup but having had a look online the cost is faaaaar out of my affordability eg $1500 ++
Can anyone suggest a good affordable, reliable option that does what I want ......up to a max of $300-$400
My computer is pretty old and coming to the end of its life and I want to get this in place before the inevitable happens.......... Then I can carry it on with the new computer when I can afford to get one
Ps all the techno talk about raids etc that I have read online is doing my head in and I still don't understand and can't work out what exactly I need to buy.......so dumb it down please
