What software do you use to do backups with IDE Drives??
I am going to buy a 3ware card and 4 IDE drives (160 GB) to do a RAID 5.
What software (free or commercial) can i use????
The architecture will be a server (with the raid) an several clients, mostly
Linux, but posibly solaris (and perhaps some windows :-(
Thanks in advance...
