Yes, that's more or less how I do it today. But it's insane: I have a
perfectly capable system developed to automate tasks, it can do billions of
operations per second and yet it can not automagically reallocate space for
me? Pathetic. Plus I want ALL metainformation keept on ALL drives: it's
small amount of data, after all, and even if I can restore all files from
DVDs it's certainly easier to do if I'll know what exactly was stored on
that broken drive!
Sure I can develop a lot of palliatives (I do ls -lR regularly and
store it on RAIDed partition), but it's all ugly and stupid.
