Backup Day

2013-05-23 03:38:00.142868+00 by meuon 1 comments

I'm declaring May 23rd "Verify your backup(s) day!" - I just found a backup script that was failing to mount the backup drive, and was making a huge file where the mount (share) was supposed to be mounted, so it did not error.

The good news is this was only one of several backup schemes, I like doing backups several different ways to different targets. Sometimes they need raw human verification as well.

Time to rewrite this one.. Please go verify yours as well before the holiday weekend.
