Norton's Ghost used to backup a RAID 1 arrayNorton's GHOST and other Disk Cloning software.
If you use SSDs, ensure the product can correctly handle them.
RESEARCH the product - it could be that it is actually MALWARE
and holds your data for RANSOM.
Ghost is supposed to allow you to creat an exact copy of your disk,
for use as a backup (usually).

I GAVE my Norton Ghost away, as it was completely useless to me at

Raid 1, but I have NOT tried it (the risk is yours).
Now, (7.2016) however, there are methods of using Norton Ghost 15
with RAID 1.
