And on this note, this is one of the reasons that I am not that keen
on having all my data on unencrypted tapes and/or shiney plastic
disks. This is yet another reason why I use dirvish/rsync with LUKS
encrypted ext3 USB/eSATA disks as it means I don't have to compromise
between ease of access to files (the backup is just a mirror of the
data) and security.
So one a backup disk is mounted (via USB) I just do this:
spencer:~$ dirvish-locate spencer-rotor .bash_profile

So I now know I have a history of this file for the last week on a
per-day basis, I have another disk that does monthly and yearly
backups that is stored offsite.
I am often amused at the amount of time people put into securing the
whole login process and then leave tar dump tapes lying around
everywhere in their offices.
