I use a laptop but the hard drive isn't big enough so I store everything (music/pics/games) on a 500gb external hard disk & use this as the main drive.

I've just bought a 1tb external disk & want to make sure the external 500gb drive is automatically backed up (mirrored) onto the 1tb disk.

Read a few articles on the net but would appreciate some feedback/recommendations on how to automate it.

Cheers geeks.

Look for Willow Creek Software - Backup to DVD/CD (also backs up to HDD). Very easy to use.

Cobian backup, a bit messy to setup, but does a great job. Even supports shadow copy. Perfect for scheduled backups.

Titan Backup is also good. :thumbsup:

That's synchronisation software, not backup software.

Yes, the OP said he wanted his data mirrored onto the new disk. SyncToy will do this.
