Having sufured several hard disk failures in the past few years, my
setup is the following:
- have a separate hard disk with enough capacity to hold your data
- put that disk either in another machine, either in a firewire/USB2
Right now my desktop and my laptop are synchronized that way. I can
even synchronize throught the network with ssh configured correctly.
It's simple. It's flexible. And it works.
