I am using ubuntu server 10.04 with rsnapshot;
I plan on alternating the backup external hdd every week.
snapshot_root /media/backup_disk_1/backup no_create_root 1.
There is a hourly, daily, weekly and monthly cron job.
if I was to switch to the 2nd external hdd then I would need to setup another mount with it's UUID and mount to /media/backup_disk_2
then I would need to manually change the root location in rsnapshot.conf
snapshot_root /media/backup_disk_2/backup no_create_root 1.
Is there an automated way to do this instead of changing the config file everytime I alternate between the hdd?
Will mounting both of the external hdd to /media/backup_disk_1 work? So no matter which hdd I mount they will all mount to /media/backup_disk_1.
