comment automatically copy from mac desktop to USB
Hey lockonsk, I recommend you post a question called "How can I write a script that automatically detects a usb key being connected and transfers files to it" on unix.stackexchange.com. I'd love to help but don't have time to write a full script, which is why I posted this is a comment.

Easiest way would be to write a script to monitor udev for the insertion event of your usb key and call a script that will rsync files from your desktop to your usb.

The word from (your column name) is a reserved word. You need to put backticks around it like this `from`. You'll also want to put single quotes around the variables in the SQL string.

comment Progressive upgrade of a RAID array
Hmmm, good questions. Unfortunately I've never dealt with hardware RAID so I'm not too sure what would happen.

You would have to partition the 2TB drives in 500GB chunks.

What does the messages table look like? Are from and to numbers or strings?

comment Is there a way to prevent a partition on a usb key from being mounted?
That's what I was planning to do with at least of the partitions. But I have another partition which contains an OS that I would like to not have mounted when plugged into another computer.
