I just bought a 2 gb additionnal disk for my system. I bought it because i need more room and a better backup policy.
I do not have that much data; but i certainly have had my share of data i had to restore because of accidental partial or total loss (erased or faulty disk).
I was considering to format it with a ZFS partition to have both snapshots and auto-repair (i intend to swap 2 disks like each other week to backup my disk, and keep it in a safe place)
considering also to define a truecrypt volume inside the zfs partition.
I have seen there is a ppa for zfs on unbuntu (64 bits only)
any comment why zfs could be a good/bad idea for such a system ? ease of installation (I never used it) ?
Is is overall robust enough on ubuntu that I can trust it better than whatever else i have been using ?
Any reason to avoid truecrypt on zfs on ubuntu ?
Have a great day !
