I don't understand why that will not work.

I think the safest solution is keeping all the Bacula Volumes local on 
HDD, then rsync to external HDD.  But then, I'm not the one doing 1TB.

FWIW, OEMExpress downtown[1] has them for roughly $200 each.

worked on Bacula stuff offline.  OEMExpress is a pretty good source for 
hardware.  http://www.oemexpress.com/
