Im a noob. How do i use crontab and tar to auto back up Documents, Music and pictures. Also do this daily weekly and monthly, and only have 1 copy of each file?
You want to create a backup scheme where your Documents, Music, and Pictures are tarred daily, weekly and monthly. You only need to keep one copy of each file. You are going to use tar utility to do the actual backing up as it will compress all the files being backed up.
