I'm looking to build my first computer. I plan on putting my operating system and most common used applications on a SSD. But everything else (including music, movies, word documents, etc.) will go on a HDD. What I would like to do, if possible, is to have two HDDs that have the exact same data. This way if one fails I can simply buy a new one and copy all the data on to the new one. Is there a way to mirror data from one drive to another or any other solutions? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
