Hard-disk. The idea is to have another logical partition for backups
and then some scripts to upload/download to any secure site (I could
use rsync over ssh or simply scp). But the uploading is a second step.
Now I'd like to deal with the first stage: the dump process.
Another question: for restoring a backup, do I need to create (fdisk)
a destination partition with the exact same size of the original?
Could I use a greater one? (in this case, would I lose disk-space or
the filesystem is "expanded" accordingly?).
Finally, the 3rd stage: if you're going to save the backup files in
an "non-trusty" machine, which kind of container / encryption software
would you use? This would need to be easily scriptable, for automatize
the backup task.
Thanks to all the contributors of this thread!
