    Do you mean for backups/redundancy, i.e. RAID, or literally you want every change made on one PC mirrored on another, totally separate PC?

    If the latter, why? There may well be a much easier way to achieve whatever it is you're trying to do...

    What do you hope to achieve by doing that? I ask because I'm not sure you'll be able to do exactly what you're thinking, for a start any slight deviation in hardware will prevent a "mirrored" OS installation from working (if it's even possible) but if the aim is merely to have total access to one PC from another location, you might want to consider using a thin client or RDP

    My friend,

    I.e. I have now windows 7, some application and database installed on it plus some folders and files, I want to keep this PC safe by mirroring it to another PC with the same previous mentioned stuff,

    So it sounds like you really just want a back up of everything on the PC, is that correct? In that case, you could look at setting up a RAID array, which will mirror the entire contents of your hard drive to another, equally sized hard drive (or multiple drives for added redundancy). The downside is, it's still inside the same PC so if the PC is destroyed by fire/flood, so is the backup.

    This thread might be useful, it details a few different backup solutions you could look in to and find one that suits your needs: URGENT: Disk Imaging Vendor Solutions for Backup & Recovery

    I wonder if an image is what he means?
    That takes a snapshot of the computer exactly as it is now and stores it -this can be put back on the computer if needed. Or put on another IDENTICAL computer.
    No changes that took place after the image will be saved though

    How about migrating your machine into a vm (virtualbox or VMWare Workstation) and then use BackupChain to take live backups periodically.
