I am consider to test Hot Copy backup...

Somebody please, correct if I am wrong, but Ho Cpy can create a device,
such as /dev/HOTCOPYDEVICE, I am abe to create snapshot from other
/dev/<WHATEVER> to the hot copy device, and mount it like any other normal

Cool indeed!...

If it so, I can snapshot the /dev/vda9, e.g., to the hot copy device, which
is in a large virtual disk, as Lindsay suggest, and mount it when need
recovery some file....

Just an idea!
