They're cheap these days and can hold a lot of data. I've got one here
that's 160 GB. It currently contains a couple of generations of backup
from two computers.
Hmm. I blew off the tiny, hyperexpensive usb drives a couple of years
ago, but haven't looked at them recently. That could work well. I had
been reading up on nfs, thinking about connecting it to my laptop and
using it to back up my data. I also made a quick try to get ftp
working, but didn't succeed immediately, and never got back to it.
You need another computer to use ftp or nfs. An usb disk is just another
"internal" disk on the system, but physically external. It is transparent
and slower, and very handy.
