LTO-4 Backup with Bacula
Intro With Archlinux32 reaching some terabytes of data to backup I needed something “modern”, like a tape. Now, big tapes like LTO-8 are close to unaffordable, LTO-4 drives and tapes on the other hand can be aqcuired on the cheap. They get thrown out of servers rooms at the moment. An LTO-4 tape can take 800 GB uncompressed data and the drive can be bought on Ebay for 200 to 300 CHF.
