I have approximately 5, and soon to be 6 laptop hard drives that aren't being used at the moment. They are not the same size, so I'm not sure that LVM is the best case for this. I am looking to have the drives store backups, with redunancy, produced by my central linux server. [It's a small personal server with very few requests]. The type of backups that I'm looking to do is backuping up archieves [tar.gz files created via a cron script].
At the moment, all of the drives have a USB enclosure that sits on a USB hub.
Is there a tool that can make this easier to do, rather than creating everything via shell script?
