Re: [tlug] UNIX backup solution

USB is quite slow!
I was using a USB harddisk and gave on this!
The latest I did was to insert the hard disk (remobable IDE Box) into the 
system as part of the file system that works quit fast.  The only item is I 
am not sure if I can remove it from the system as you describe a hotswappable.
