Hi Yousuf,

Can't you just run your existing rsync backup from a cron job? That
would probably do exactly what you need. Once a day your cron could
also fire off a job that would use find to find everything more than 30
days old, and delete them.

Could I please ask a favor of you? I read over 500 non-spam emails a
day, so I need to do it fast, and rely on traditional capitalization and
punctuation for fast reading. Could I please ask you to capitalize "i",
as well as the first letter of every sentence? When reading fast, it
really does make a difference.
