    Backup of multiple drives to a single large drive


    New member here. Running Win 10 Home, 64 bit. I have three 1 TB hard drives on the system and back them up to three 1 TB drives periodically using Casper 10.1 . I also have a 4 TB drive that I'd like to use for offsite backup and my intention was to partition the 4 TB drive into 3 partitions and use Casper to copy the 1 TB drives into those partitions. Casper doesn't deal with that the way I intended - it copies the first drive OK, but then wants to copy the second drive into that same partition. It doesn't allow me to specify a second partition on that drive. Also have Macrium Reflect (old - 5.1 level) and was unable to create a clone copy of the three drives using that either. Reflect would allow me to create an image of the drives into the three partitions on the large drive. Again, the goal was to be able to create a clone of the three drives in each of the partitions. Maybe I'm missing something? Is there a way to do what I want to do? All suggestions welcome.

    :)

  2. [Question] Add a drive for RAID-0 or single large drive?

    You do realize that for $400 for that raid investment, you could be stepping into a 512GB drive?

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    Obviously you're looking for something besides your Xp Pro utility that does this?
