Have you looked at Carbon Copy Cloner? I used it it mirror a failing HDD to a new HDD and it worked very well. The new HDD was a bootable disk after the cloning. It is shareware so the cost in minimal and it has a schedule function and an automatic function that you can customize to fit your workload.
