Really, I was gonna let you guys battle it out but I'll chime in.
Back-up options are a fine question here as many coming from OSX/Win
will be wondering what their options for backing up sessions are.
And to be fair Kim, it was 1 person. Hardly an ass-chewing.

I don't think your situation is all that common. It's rather advanced
and power-user-ish IMO.
Here's how I keep 2 drives synced:
* rsync -aur --inplace --delete /media/Storage/ /media/StorageBackup
So I think if you mount both drives, edit my command to match your
source drive and destination drives, then swap 'em the new one should boot.
* rsync -av /media/source /media/destination (that might be fine for
you. edit source/destination)
Though this doesn't address the points you cited in your 1st post. Just
the one above. And grsync might work fine in above cited scenario.
Personally, (dev hat off) saving a session in ~/ is nuts to me if HD
space is even a possibility of an issue. I do *everything* on another
drive. Just me.
I'll leave it to you guys to continue from here.
