in another post someone said "RAID 1 is fine for redundancy but I think i'd rather just image the drive every week or so, that way you have a backup rather than just a mirror. I.e. if you delete stuff on disk 1 in a mirror set it does from disk 2 as well but if you have the drive imaged you can restore to your last backup.

how would i make an image of it?
