Default Raid!

Hi Everyone!
Can someone pls help.
I bought Norton Ghost to mirror my HD for protection of data. I did not get an activation code and after a lot of calls and emails I have decided to return the product for a full refund.

I currently run Raid in mirroring mode, and what I would like to know is this:
As both my drives are in a Vantec pull out case (SATA) and I think hot swoppable, can I remove the one drive and possibly once or twice a week put it in to update and in this way have backup that is at worst one week out of date. This way I protect my self against virus and or a HD failure?
Any advice?
Many thanks

No, thats not how it works.
Data is only copied to the array when your doing the action, not when you decide to pop it in.
