SnapShot README =============== SnapShot is designed to run from cron, and will take regular backups of specified folders. The concept is based on long-standing practice in the UNIX world with hard-links, but more specifically, the shell script by Mike Rubel was used as a starting point. http://www.mikerubel.org/computers/rsync_snapshots/ In fact, I first used Mike's script, and then made my own perl version. The significant conceptual changes I have made are: 1. Use date-based names instead of relative names. This aids sorting 2. use a central configuration file. 3. Enable locking of folders to allow concurrent snapshot backups, as well as enabling the entire snapshot volume to be backed up to remote storage. Rolf
