    If your PCs hard drive supports it, you could set the two drives up in RAID1 configuration for exactly that purpose.

    That would be a function of the SATA controller on the motherboard.

    If it's got an Intel chipset (ex. ICH10R = the R stands for RAID), and you set the drive mode in BIOS to support RAID instead of IDE or AHCI, and install two drives, you should see a CTRL+I prompt during bootup which lets you configure it.

    There are others besides Intel (this is the one I could spout off all that info off the top of my head for), you need to check your motherboard manual.

    RAID 1 and RAID 0 are the most common types of RAID configuration. Raid 0 uses 2 drives to increase performance and RAID 1 is used to mirror your setup in case of failure.
