I searched the net looking for an updated how-to based on Fedora, without success, so perhaps someone around here can provide me some hints.
Until recently, I have been running F9 64bit on 2 Maxtor 300Gb SATA HDs connected via RAID 1. After a bumpy upgrade (and re-installation) to F10 64bit beta, I confronted problems with GRUB recognizing RAID, so I discarded RAID and I'm running F10 in the 1st HD alone. In order to avoid mayor headaches in the future, I'm planning the following:
- To get the second HD to automount and become accessible by me as user
- Set fwbackups to make daily backups of my entire /home directory to the 2nd HD using rsync
As already told, I found very little as to how to accomplish this under Fedora (most of what I found is geared to Ubuntu users). So far, I found gparted recognizes the 2nd HD as sbd, and I created a mount point at /media/Home2. But that's it.
As you may guess, my goal is to be able to restore all my data/settings after a full re-installation of future Fedoras on the 1st HD. Of course, I intend to use other backup methods as well; just trying to simplify my life a little bit as beta tester
Any hint appreciated.
