I have an 8GB flash drive that I would like to back up to a hard drive. My current plan is to use a Folder Action Script to automatically run "rdiff-backup FlashDriveDirectory BackupDirectory". Does anyone know what happens if the flash drive is disconnected while rdiff-backup is running? Will the backup directory be corrupted? Since this is an 8GB drive, there may not always be time to run the backup.
