    Hi,

    I'm experimenting with Acronis True Image 9.1 Server for Linux. I've used it for a couple of disk migrations and backups, and am looking to try and use it for local backup of my remote web/mail server.

    The box has two disks, one for root and another for backups. What I basically want to do is take complete copies of the first drive (the whole disk), dump them onto the backup drive, and delete any archive more than seven days old. I think I could probably do all this with the X11 tools, or with the secure zone feature, but this box is headless and X-less and it doesn't appear that any of that stuff is possible using the command-line tools alone.

    Anybody got a cron script they feel like sharing that will basically do that?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    the command trueimagecmd is what you are looking for.

    Yeah, I know about the command-line program to create images. I'm looking to see people's cron scripts.

    Specifically interested in seeing how people implement things like a number-of-days counter, or size-limit counters, and so forth.
