Ok, so it looks that the volume name has a 30 character [usable space] 
limitation, or a 23 character [usable space] limitation if, I assume during 
the volume creation process, one selects backup = y. 

As a side note, I'd think that for use in a limited space field, something 
along the lines of ".bak" or even ".b" would be preferrable over ".backup".  
Is this trivial to change, or would it be a monumental refactor? 

Regardless, what does setting up backup to yes actually mean in the volume 
creation process? 

I found this, but the information contained wasn't useful ;)
