aye.. backup what one thinks is important ..

but the package list should be a 1 time thingie to backup
or at lease every time a new package is added/removed from your box

and similarly, no need to backup the entire /etc and only
the files you changed

and i assume the backup is done onto another server somewhere out
in never-never land and not on the same pc even if on a different disk

c ya
15TB per 4U live backup is when things get fun
