Backup script using rsync
#!/bin/sh
# Taken from http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/examples.html
# This script does personal backups. You will end up with a 7 day
# rotating incremental backup. The incrementals will go into
# subdirectories named after the day of the week, and the
# current full backup goes into a directory called "current".
# directory to backup
BDIR=$HOME
# excludes file - this contains a wildcard pattern per line of files
# to exclude
EXCLUDES=$HOME/local/etc/backup_exclude
# the backup location
BLOCATION=/Volumes/Storage/Backups
# set to the location of directory containing additional
# backup scripts to be run prior to backing up
SCRIPTS_DIR=$HOME/local/etc/backup.d
