Backup software for 2 external drives

Hi all,

I do my video work using an external RAID 0 enclosure.

Does anyone know of an app that will automatically make a copy of the data from my external RAID to another external drive?

Ideally the app would perform the backup when I plug the external drive in, and only copy across the data that isn't already there.

Thanks for any tips

The app Carbon Copy Cloner will do exactly what you want. See here. Set up a "scheduled task" to run when the external is detected.

Just what I was looking for! Sweet..... and to think I have this app already and didn't know it could do this. Doh!
