$0 is just the command line... maybe `pwd` + $0 could do the work...
but not if the scipt is in the PATH...

I can't use udev... but maybe I'll read something about it

Well for now I will assume that the script is launched only from
the directory in which it is located... it seems the easyer way.


Maybe this helps

if [ x_$0 =  x_script.sh ];
      backup_dir="`echo $0|sed 's/script.sh//'`"

echo "$backup_dir is the backup-directory"
