I've used Mac OS X 10.6.8
for a long time an now, with my great pleasure, I finally moved to Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 64-bit
Using Mac, I was used to backup all my documents and files on two externals USB hard drives, that I configured in a RAID 1 setup using Disk Utility application.
When I wanted to backup something I was used to connect these HDs simultaneously via an USB hub to my Mac and to simply drag files on the RAID volume.
Here's a simple scheme of my disk configuration:
- DISK 1 (2TB disk) = RAID Partition (1TB, FAT32) + TimeMachine partition (500GB MacOS Extended Journaled) + another partition (500GB FAT32);
- DISK 2 (1TB disk) = RAID Partition (1TB, FAT32);
an image if you want to better understand what I mean.
Now I was wondering if it is possible to replicate this workflow on Debian, possibly without loosing any of the data I already have on these disks.
Do I have to use mdam
? And how?
Let me know if you need more information.
Thanks very much for your support.
