Re: backup strategies
hi ha morgan...
i think the first tar creates ROOT$date.tar.gz...
and think it backup /home too since its not excluded ??
( which should ignore itself... as you're referring
unless /home is a link to go somewhere else the
second tar command is not needed ??
the second tar creates HOME$date.tar.gz... which backups up the
prev(first) ROOT$date.tar.gz ??
and the third tar creates CVS$date.tar.gz
and all three tar files gets magically dumped to cdr ( good idea )
