Long term lossless music archive Reply #75 – 2007-09-02 13:49:46 Quote from: Synthetic Soul on 2007-09-02 07:34:43But we are discussing backing up CDs, so that we have a perfect representation of the disc, at a time when the physical CD has long since corrupted.The OP asked whether to backup the 200 GB hdd to another harddisk or to dvd's. Not especially backing up cd's or dvd's to drive or disc. I suggest backing up to (external) hdd. Can be done overnight, checked overnight. All said.Quote from: MusicLover on 2005-06-22 19:48:36#34 > I'm fed up with manual work for back up... So next thing for me is switching my two drives to a RAID 1 controller. (Hope, there would be no data loss while switching the disks to that RAID controller)..No one responded or at least I didn't read it, but IIRC setting up a raid array will remove data present. Can anyone confirm this.?
