    What if there are several disks on a different datastores ? seems like the script finds them all but cloning to the backup location only the last one found as the others are overwritten by it. if that's the case, then this is bad. correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks

    This is a good concept and program Definitely only for those that understand the command line, it has a way to go for development, but it's exactly what we need to backup ESX with. Use with an eSata attached disk for external backup - excellent !
