Now I'm wondering what can be trusted as a medium for removable backups.
I much prefer the notion of something like a drive that carries
uncompressed copies of files, for direct access to a backup. Rather
than serial access tapes, or terribly slow multi-DVD collections.
I found USB drives to be hugely unreliable. I ended up removing the
disks from their enclosures and using them inside the main computer
chassis, like a normal drive.
I think something is buggy with the USB drive implementation, though I
don't know what exactly (kernel driver, enclosure electronics, who knows...)
You might have better luck with eSATA drives, rather than USB.
For my backups, I prefer to use something like rsnapshot
(http://rsnapshot.org/) to copy files to a remote live computer. This
works very well and very reliably, for me.
