Backup for One day old files

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This should be verified as I may have inadvertently introduced a bug while I was ‘scrubbing’ this. I’m recycling some of my tricks/scripts/configs in the off chance that they are of use to someone besides me. For this one I needed a quick shell script to create a tar.gz backup file of anything modified or added since 1 day ago and cobbled this together to address the concept of ‘incremental’ backup capability.
