Tony from Los Angeles, CA

Tony works for a security firm and he wants to mirror the data of a hard drive onto a RAID. Leo says the first thing Tony should do is clone the drive since it's a very important drive to his job. Drive's will eventually die, so it's vital for Tony, or anyone for that matter, to clone the drive to back it up. Hard drives usually come with utilities for this purpose. EaseUS has a great imaging utility for that. Once that's done, save the original drive in a safe place and then use the cloned drive moving forward.
