@mikeserv - thanks and I look forward to any suggestions or tutorials you come up with. I have been using btrfs for several years and it has been great. But I have not tapped into any of its advanced features. I think all the warnings about it not being ready for serious use made me hesitant to explore anything other than the basic functions.

@mikeserv - I think you have put me on the right track. Thanks. Now I need to find a send/receive tutorial. The man pages are not enough. I believe I also need to investigate snapper and buttersink (pypi.python.org/pypi/buttersink/0.5)
