I usually backup in reverse................ I use a USB Western Digital 200 Gig. Zero disadvantages. Because it goes to USB 2.0 the transfer reate is a little slower but not really terribly noticeable.

i backup using linux live-cd's. i seem to get a faster file transfer. i just use the live-cd to access all my partitions, create a backup folder and copy everything i want into that folder and burn a data dvd.
