Nightly LVM snaphots only go so far, and given i only recently had to
touch wood, cross fingers and sacrifice a few cats to the god of
data integrity before doing a mkraid --really-dangerous-no-resync,
I was wondering if anyone had anyone suggestions for 100GB+ backup
solutions affordable to the home user.
A really neat solution would be mutual remote backups. I've plenty of
space and'd be happy to give a few 10GBs of space via rsync or NFS or
NBD over IPSec to anyone. But bandwidth would be a problem, having
only about 16KB/s outbound, it would work for the other person though
- 50KB/s for a few hours is enough for half a gig a night.
I'm thinking that just buying another disk is only way. Anyone know
1. Sorry CJB, Liam, Kevin and all the other cat lovers, but had to be
2. Because I'd stupidly added a kicked disk back into MD without
hotremoving it first, be nice if MD was more tolerant of dumb users
3. *Grumble* Eircom *grumble*
