Re: Two lessons from this
So you backup only one computer? I have a Linux box which is always on which I synchronize all my devices with. Yes, I could unmount remotely the volumes between the backups but I feel this is too much bother. Anyway, if the account doing the backups is allowed to mount them, where's the additional security?
The problem with my setup is that I sometimes use the box to for example do a quick Internet search. This is the moments when I am vulnerable. That's why I'll probably change the account owning the backup volumes and give my primary account only read access (I sometimes need the backed up files, after all). What's so wrong with that to vote it down?
