    Can anyone tell me how Dell's DataSafe works. In theory this is a Raid system and I should have two 160 GB drives in my new Dell XPS 400, but this is hard to decifer and Dell doesn't seem to be much help.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Thanks Lance1,

    The information tells what Dell Marketing says about DataSafe. Now that I have purchased a Dell with DataSafe it is very difficult to tell what, if anything it is actually doing.

    I purchased what I thought was going to be two 160 GB drives and one would be used as a backup automatically in the DataSafe manner in which marketing described. Well, what I have looks like something entirely different.

    A search of My Computer shows:
    Total Free Space
    Local Disk (C:) local Disk 107 GB 81.0 GB
    Backup (D:) Local Disk 37.2 GB 37.1 GB

    I have not yet activated Norton Ghost 10 and I'm not sure if I have to do that in order for DataSafe to (automatically) work. I would love to hear from some other user who is actually gotten DataSafe to work and knows why the two 160 GBs of storage space I thought I had purchased from Dell is so hard to find.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Lost in (no-space)

    Just wondering if anyone on here has ever used Dell's DataSafe or Norton Ghost 10?
