My server contains a 40G hd. I have another 40G hd that I am going to make dump the current one. Therefore I will have 2 bootable HD's, that are identical.....for the day I do it. What I am wanting to do is leave the 2nd hd mounted as slave and from that day on, sync the 2 every 24 hrs. I want the 2nd drive to always be within 24 hours of the current server drive that I am using.

Make sense? How and can this be done? Free 4.7 which I need to bring to -STABLE first.

Sound like you want a RAID 1 array. Instead if syncing during a period of time, it will actually "mirror" every file change you make.

Whoops. Link would be good.
