Groupwise Backup with DBCOPY + RSYNC
Dbcopy allows me to backup but over several weeks the destination folder get large
I was thinking out using Rsync
My GW is on a volume (ext3) called gw
I've added another volume gwbak
I'm currently doing a rm -r /gwbak to delete the backup once a week
This takes some 4hours to remove and dbcopy
I was thinking of using rsync remove files no long in the source
ie. rsync -av --delete-after /gw/ /gwbak
then use DBcopy to copy the live files
dbcopy -p /gw/gwpo /gwbak/gwpo
dpcopy -d /gw/gwdom /gwbak/gwdom
Would this safe (obviously need to make sure not mixing up source & destination !!
Any pitfalls ?
