If this can be achieved on a RaspberryPi, then that would be a basic home solution for everyone as it's low cost & low power consumption - just plug a little box into your home network and forget about it. A simple configuration system would help the average non-techie user.

And I agree that if a local backup system can be combined with save/restore, then it's a one stop solution.

Hummm... there is no chance do just "copy & zip" the device content and "copy back while unziping" inside later, in the same or other device?

Come on Rnp, just come out and say what we're all thinking:

HOTSYNC!

;-)

I mean, if Open webOS will run on an Ubuntu PC, how long before some homebrew developer builds...

...webOS Desktop!

In some cases, you won't even need a RaspberryPi.

Some WiFi routers support OpenWRT (and other similar "linux on a router" firmware builds) and also support having a USB flash drive plugged into the USB port (you will need a special cable though).

This would allow one to turn a compatible router (need a list of them) into a pass-through backup server, which can intercept Palm Profile backup traffic to store a local copy, or pull down a backup from the profile server, or act as a standalone backup server for the local network (or even remote backups while you're traveling)

While this isn't something that exists in a ready-to-use form, I'm not new to messing around with routers and this is definitely doable

Great!

Anyone want a lung? There is no problem to me, I have two...
