    Hello, when I built my computer I planned to have a Rad 1 configuration.

    I purchased three 500GB Sata Spinpoint drives, planning to have Windows installed on one, My Documents and Programs on the second (with two partitions) and then the third drive to backup My Documents and Programs. Unfortunately I never got around to actually setting it up and configuring it properly.

    I would like to know how I would go about setting up this configration now so that I do not have to use any special programs to backup my data.

    I also have a 250GB Western Digital MyBook External Hard Drive that I use to backup my documents as well, is there a way to backup My Documents to two sources simaltaniously using a raid configuration?

    If anyone knows or has any advice, I would be extremely grateful to receive it.

    Thank you!
