Backup script

To make life a bit easier a backup script is attached here (at the end of this page) to make a full-system backup. The script will do the following:

  • It will empty your trash.
  • make an list of files and folder that to don't want to backup (an exclude_file mentioned as above). Files ended with .bag, .mpg, .mpeg, .avi, .png will be exclude and also everything in /tmp and /download folder.
  • then it will create a destination folder at your argument directory.

Usage of the script

chmod +x 

and then (assumed that you want to put a backup file at /home/golfcar)

./fullbackup /home/golfcar  

After backup finish, you will see a folder named like golfcart-master-010313.tgz where "golfcart-master" is your hostname and "010313" is a backup date (01/03/2013).

The script can be download from here
