Why You Need Guardian MAXimus mini RAID-1
Guardian MAXimus mini is "live activity" backup of financial records, medical files, business projects...any critical data that you simply cannot risk losing. It's always guarding against data loss by writing the same information in real-time to two separate drives for a "mirrored" copy. It also protects you from costly system downtime and data restoring after a single hard drive-equipped system crash. Even daily scheduled software driven data backups can't protect you between your last backup and the moment the hard drive fails.
By having a second, "mirrored" copy, all of your data stays backed up and accessible while you replace the failed drive.
