Ah, but these days I back up my systems to an Intel SS-4000E fileserver.  And on
my old BBS, I got a Colorado tape backup system pretty much as soon as they
became available.

Point being, something like your scheme might do as a very short-term solution,
but it won't take very long before you're looking for a real backup solution
that doesn't take so much effort.  Or you will start looking for excuses to not
do your backup on the original schedule you had planned.

All of my backups are done for me, automatically and painlessly, overnight.
It took a bit of effort (and yes, a few dollars) to set things up this way but
I wouldn't have it any other way, now.
