    Nice, easy to make some personal mods I chose. There is one problem I found. The tail continues to run after program end and you will end up with multi tail executions running in Linux. This modification seems to stop this. Change: "then tail -f $LOGFILE >&3 & # run tail in bg" To: "then tail --pid=$(pgrep -x simplebashbu) -f $LOGFILE >&3 & # run tail in bg"

    I've used this script many times on many machines over the last 10 years. It's still a great tool. On my qmail servers, I make one adjustment to the email notification section. Original: then cat $LOGFILE | mail -s "$EMAILSUBJECT" $EMAILADDRESS Change to: then echo -e "Subject: <your server> Backup Completed Successfully\n" | cat - $LOGFILE | /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject $EMAILADDRESS Maybe folks will find that useful. --Jeff

    Nice script ported it to OSX 10.6 , made some minor adjustements. Time Machine is OK but always like a script.
