Hi I have a MBWEII with 2 x 500GB setup Raid 1 and would like to start tinkering with it. My knowledge of linux is very limited so I would like to have a backup in case I brick it.
I'm thinking if I buy 1 new-drive (exact, or similar in functionality) to the drives in the MBWE, then remove drive2, stick in the new-drive, will MBWE be tricked into thinking the new-drive is drive2 and start mirroring data onto newdrive?
I can then store away drive2 as a backup, and if after tinkering I brick my MBWE then I can just remove one of the bricked drive and stick in drive2 to recover my MBWE.
Also, I don't have a spare computer to install linux, would php run with IIS? and would that be sufficient for me to run the firmware update script to enable ssh on my MBWE?
