Adding a password to my backup script
I've been using tar in a small script to backup my stuff, like this...
Now I'd like to switch to something that supports passwords, perhaps 7z or zip. 7z has better compression, right? Which is faster? Can anyone suggest how the line above should be modified?
tar -pczvf backup-`date +%Y-%m-%d`.tar.gz /home/roger/Desktop /home/roger/Documents /home/roger/.thunderbird
Many thanks indeed
