Bacula And Removable Disk HOWTO

For backups i use Bacula which i consider much easier to configure than Amanda (sorry UMD). I backup my content to external USB drives. I use 2 1TB drives, keeping one far away from my server.

On the bacula mailing lists Josh Fisher provided a great script to have hard drives pretend to be virtual changers. Each drive is a magazine and each file is a tape.

Since i can't contact Josh or find this document anywhere on the Internet, i've decided to host it myself.

I got this working for me quite nicely, but i'm no expert. I don't expect to answer questions, but i'll be glad to make clarifications to the HOWTO.
