Suggest a backup solution for a dual boot system?
Hi. I posted a few days ago (thread title: Can Linux Handle my Computer) and got some good feedback.
At the time, I was trying to figure out how to get a RAID 0 and RAID 1 arrays to work with Ubuntu.
I've been doing some more asking around and now think I'm better off just ditching RAID altogether in favor of a more traditional backup method.
Here's the setup I'm considering. Please feel free to critique anything I say here:
1 drive for Windows 7 system + applications (NTSF)
1 drive for Ubuntu or Mint or whatever + applications (ext3 or 4)
1 drive for data files, documents, itunes library, etc (NTFS)
1 drive for backing up the "data" drive (NTFS)
I'm planning to use Free File Sync to keep the "backup" drive up to date because there is a Windows and Linux version available for that software.
Will I have any problems with syncing and switching between Windows and linux? If I modify a file in Windows, then run Free File Sync in linux, will that cause problems or vice-versa?
Thanks for any help!
