Super simple folder backup one-liner
Fri 06 June 2014
I needed a simple cron job, that just took backups of my project folders, should the worst happen to my laptop. Google brought up nothing obvious, so I figured I'd share it here.
tar zcvf /tmp/snap.tgz ~/Projects && rsync /tmp/snap.tgz user@remotebox:/home/backups/snap_`date +%F_%T`.tgz && rm /tmp/snap.tgz
Okay, I'll admit it's a bit of a long one-liner.
