Today I had some shocking news from a good friend of my that there was a horrible type in the help menu of the script and while it does not affect the script the way it works and you are still able to run backups and restores you would have had a few a issue if you would have copy and paste from the help menu to run the –> Search pattern this was a honest typo and is now corrected.
BIG THANK YOU TO “MOOTS”
So I quickly updated the online script and it’s ready to downloading and I am sorry if the typo has caused any confusion.
If you already use smalltarbkp.bash version 1.3 you can simply run the following command.
$ smalltarbkp.bash [-upgrade]
If you want to know how I’ve configured my crontab to use this script here is a example.
# TAR BACKUP SCRIPT DAILY
0 2 * * * /home/ricardo/scripts/smalltarbkp.bash -path /home/ricardo/Programming -name “Programming” >/dev/null 2>&1
# TAR BACKUP SCRIPT WEEKLY
0 1 * * 0 /home/ricardo/scripts/smalltarbkp.bash -path /home/ricardo/Pictures -name “Pictures” >/dev/null 2>&1
# TAR BACKUP SCRIPT MONTHLY
0 0 1 * * /home/ricardo/scripts/smalltarbkp.bash -path /home/ricardo/CalibreLibrary -name “CalibreLibrary” -full >/dev/null 2>&1
Enjoy it and please let me know what you think @tergum_pro on twitter
