   Apparently the backup drive failed:

   I have an external 3T drive sitting here that I might as well use. Can I
assume that my cron script is OK and I need only go through the process of
configuring the new hard drive?

   If so, please remind me how I get the UUID for the new drive to replace
the apparently defunct one in /etc/fstab.

   All suggestions, recommendations, and other advice is certainly welcome.
