    The mechanism could be used also to backup on a hard disk. Hard
disks are currently the safest backup method, provided they are run
periodically, but not continuously; this leads to connect them only for
the duration of the backups, and it might be used on remote servers. In
this case, better play with the power supply of the disk than
insert/extract the usb plug.
