On the rdiff-backup website it says that it does not read or write data 
files, what exactly does this mean? Are data files not backedup?

My intended use for rdiff-backup is to have an off-site copy of the HD 
from a web server. The backup/copy needs to be such that the HD I back 
it up to can be pulled from my box here, shipped to the server box 
location and installed without having to do a bunch of reconfiguring. I 
will mount a separate HD in my destination box and use it as the target 
dir for the backup.

Will rdiff-back do this? I thought it would, but after reading the 
website, now I'm not sure.
