Yes, and not on the same disk!  I have three USB disks, each of which is
capable of holding half a dozen backups.  Disk 1 has slots 11-19, disk 2
21-29 and disk 3 31-39.  Backups are done in theory to 11, 21, 31, 12,
22, 32 ..., though in practice I may dump extra backups on the same disk
if I'm doing configuration or upgrade work.
