Thanks for ext3/ext4 info.
Hmmm.. Looks like btrfs is the way for future. I am a little cautious late
adapter may be !
Also, I have slightly old fashioned view about snapshots. A lot of content
to be backed up consists of files that do not undergo change. For those
that do I'd rather opt for a revision control and backup my revision
Whether above view is good for one would also depend on the scale on which
you are backing up things - whether it's a small personal computer setup
or an industrial scale server.
Will be nice to know more views on this.
