    I have a 2011 mac mini running lion 10.7.4

    it has a 240gb mushkin solid state drive with all the apps & os, & a 500 gb mechanical drive, with some apps.

    is there a way I can make the mechanical drive into a backup to the solid state drive? a clone of the solid state drive? then if the solid state drive fails like a a (single plane engine going down), I could then run off the 500 gb drive (the plane running off the good engine that is left).
