Can I plug two hard disks onto a BlackBox Recorder and record to both drives at once in case my drive fails?

The BlackBox Recorder software does not currently support making mirrored or redundant recordings (i.e. making identical recordings onto two drives simultaneously) and to be honest most drives are fairly robust nowadays. However, it is possible to plug a USB2 RAID array such as the Glyph Technology 062E drive. This unit has built in RAID technology which when configured to RAID 1 will make identical copies of the data onto both drives giving you full redundancy. The formatting utility inside the BlackBox Recorder will format the drive to FAT32 for you.
