My suggestion, which is not worth much....
You should save your data in at least three places, so I assume
you are trying to save it to two, but both copies are on the
I would suggest the following:
One physical HDD has all your OS + Data for normal day to day
One physical HDD has all your backuppc data (/var/lib/backuppc
I am going to go with the option of using a USB HDD for the
backuppc data - I haven't looked at the config choices yet either
in Ubuntu or BackupPC - what would be easiest?
- configure Ubuntu to mount the one of the partitions on the USB
drive at /var/lib/backuppc (it's a 2TB drive thats also going to
have my OS clone from clonezilla on it)
- configure BackupPC to put backuppc data on the drive where the
systems mounts it by default (haven't tried it yet but I think
it's in /media somewhere)
Forget if anyone else answered this already, but in case you
haven't, then I would suggest the first option.
Getting ubuntu (linux) to mount a drive at a specific location is
pretty easy. Edit /etc/fstab, and copy one of the example lines
/dev/sdb1 /var/lib/backuppc ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
Assuming you use ext4 and sdb is the USB drive. Probably better is
to find out the UUID, and specify that instead of /dev/sdb1:
UUID=a3d8c557-544e-3832-37b9-1913affd8ae2 /var/lib/backuppc ext4
defaults,noatime 0 1
Maybe someone else can comment on the best way to find out the UUID
for your drive/partition....
