I read an article in PCW last night about backups and it advocated using
removable hard drives as a backup medium, pointing out the advantages
(low cost per MB) but also the disadvantages (break easily, the fact
they have to be backed up in the first place is telling).
The advantages win IMO "if you're careful" but I was wondering if anyone
has used such a backup medium, and how do removable hardrives work
anyway and will they transparently work in Linux as long as you "umount"
