RE: [nslu2-general] Copy system information from Hard Disk to USB Stick
- Why not attach another disk to Disk1, and run rsnapshot every night. This
way whenever you store something on Disk2, it will be backed-up the other
day. Thanks to this setup I already survived a disk-crash.
And it works for either Disk1 or Disk2 crashes: when Disk1 crashes (your
backup) just connect another one and the following day you've got a new
clean backup, when Disk2 crashes (carrying the system partition), you need
to rebuild your system, but your data is still safe.

Subject: [nslu2-general] Copy system information from Hard Disk to USB Stick
I have been using a Slug for a long time - using it with Unslund to
drive media centre software. I am a little concerned, though, that
the HD attached to Disk 2 (the linux root) will die soon as it has
been going for a year.
So - what I would really like to do is to copy the relevant parts of
the USB hard drive to a USB flash drive. I want to basically be able
to plug the usb drive in and have the slug boot up of that.
I am fairly proficient with using linux, but do not really understand
the drive partitions or the way the boot up works to really be able to
work out what I am doing.
Can anyone offer any suggestions ?
Thanks in advance
