In my case, I use Bacula. This backs off all my *non* Myth storage across my
network. I don't, currently, back up any Myth recordings. It's only video, after
all, I have much more important stuff I don't want to lose. Other people have
mentioned in older posts that if I want something badly enough, there will be a
repeat somewhere on some channel or other sometime in the future.
You will find many people on here who run raid, or do disk copies via rsync or
some other method, or have other backup or hardware or software security
strategies. I would rather use the disk space to hold more video. Some time in
the future, when I can eventually afford enough disk space, I may change my
attitude, but for now it's sufficient. Of course, running Myth, there is *never*
enough disk space!
