Another idea to do secure (offsite or remote) backup with the sheeva is to mirror a drive and take it to work. This is less complicated than setting up "remote-backup-with-a-friend" but does require manual involvement each day. If I wanted to do this with the sheeva as my backup server what would be the best approach?

1. Simply have a second external hdd, initially mirror data between the two and after that attach one to the sheeva and take the other to work. Then alternate between the two?

2. Connect a multiple disk array (not raid) to the sheeva and then set these up to use the base disk as a permanent local one and then have two other hdd to act as alternating mirrors. If I did this, what would be a good disk array to use? It would need at least tow bays, be hot-swap capable and be recognizable to the sheeva.

thx,
