an exact copy of drive A on it. Then you can just swap drives in case
of a major problem. The drive could be on another computer on your
LAN or in a usb case if that seems safer.
There are a number of ways of doing what you want, maybe software
RAID? But really, don't you just need to have a copy of your /home
directory and maybe a few config files? Unison can do that for you,
as well as rsync etc.
