But you do have backups I assume? Amanda can be a bear to setup, but the 
peace of mind of having the ability to restore to last nights, or a week 
ago's status is worth every drop of sweat put into it.  And once setup, 
runs every night without any assistance from me, but its always there in 
case something goes aglay.  Its like asking if newly poured cement will 
crack, wrong question, not _will_ but _when_, because it will.

This is also a strong recommendation to use a new drive whenever 
upgrading your distro of choice, you can always mount the old drive and 
copy your usefull things to the newer one.  One of the reasons my email 
corpus is so big, some folders go back to 2002.
