while there are other ways to do this possibly, a more convinent
way may be to use a product like this:
i have not tried this specific product, but I use BRU which is
from the same company and its great, and ive had a lot of dealings
with their support on their newer product bru pro, and while bru
pro 1.0 didn't meet my expectations their support was great.
i don't do this kind of backups on my systems, i backup the config
stuff, and reinstall when a system crashes then restore specific
files as i need them.
i would reccomend raid1 or raid1 with hotspare, with a 3 disk array,
all 3 disks would have to fail before you lost data. or do a 4 disk
array ..that way all 4 disks have to fail before you lose data.
