"storing downloading/storing full snapshots would be inefficient, so instead OSTree uses a git-like content-addressable store, so that multiple snapshots can be stored efficiently and an update only results in downloading the delta between snapshots. Each checked out snapshot is immutable."
Interesting ideas, but I think is against of "TINY" size/speed. Plus multiple snapshots overlayed on a base snapshot will not help with using mutiple diferent bases (libc vs. musl). Good for developers, but for home/common users (like me) why should I install/maintain MULTIPLE linux distribution for a laptop?

I would prefer to have Alpine/Archlinux/Ubuntu on the same HDD if I have to play around."Imutable" big shit worth less than small/simple/secure/modular. K.I.S.S.

I've been thinking about this for a long time.

Solution to the driver problem that cannot write data on it :)
it makes the most sense for this job; Link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbolic_link

The answer to the question how to configure logically:
USB-1 [(TCL ROM-DiSK)] == {for all directories >-> Symbolic_link} >> USB-2 [(TCL SAVE-DiSK)]

an easy logical configuration!

with a coding

with search and find function in other drivers
Find the "TCL-SAVE" folder and back up to that drive!

variable constants in this way as desired
It is possible to backup to the desired location without any problem :)

basically with its simplest examples;
Consoles without HDD drives have been implementing this logic for years.
