so, what would be a good method..
say for instance MY system. my /home is 164 Gb, with 50 Gb free, so I've used 110 Gb. Right now I do the rsync to a 500Gb Mybook USB drive. But I don't keep the drive connected, so I don't do it often enough..


It took a near disaster at our company for Upper Management to go from "daily database backups are vital" being an easily-bypassed slogan to actual etched-in-stone policy.

So, how much of that 114GB is Really Important, important enough to spend regular time, effort & money to ensure it's survival?
