How to Clone a Time Machine Drive



+ Add a Comment


Dolly Drive has a free hard drive clone service. Dolly Clone enables you to create a bootable mirror image of your hard drive. Go to dollydrive website and click on Dolly Clone to download.



Disk Utility has the ability to RAID multiple drives, even external ones. Apparently I like my Time Machine volume to be even less reliable than a normal drive, because I use a pair of external USB drives in RAID 0.

But you could also use a pair of drives in RAID 1 (mirrored). In theory that's as good as cloning the backup drive constantly. Maybe even better.
