I then did a search for "real time backup" and found a few options. I ended up with this:

You can set it to mirror whatever files from your main drive to a second, third or however many drives. It's not true mirroring but it will save your data. Any time you modify or create a file, Yadis! copies it to the backup drive. It has to be set to delete saved files when they're deleted from the main drive.

I installed this on my laptop too removing the cd drive and installing a second hard drive. Doesn't affect batter life noticeably.

All the Best,

Does it save versions? What happens if I save over a file and it copies that over across all the drives?
