ZFS & BTRFS have the ability to be set-up to do much more than "normal" filesystems do. Lots more. So much more that you need to search out their wiki pages at least.

This is a great place for ZFS info:

Also, ZFS is uses the CDDL license which is incompatible with GPL, this is why it can't be distributed with the Linux kernel.
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

For a rookie like my self I came up with a simple solution. I bought a Kingwin power switch with allows me to power up to 6 hard drives totally independent from one another. So I have 3 hard drives now. One is my test hard drive, and when there is a major update, I run it with the test hard drive first to see what happens. Than I have two identical hard drives (one backup). So All I have to do is power which ever I want, by simply pushing a button, instead of connecting and disconnecting!  ;)
