Three stage backup with rsync?

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I've been trying to make a three stage backup with stage 0 being a full monthly back up, stage 1 being a weekly backup, and stage 2 being a daily backup. I've been trying very hard to use rsync for this but sorting files by date is proving to be problematic. Sometimes it seems to work from the command line directly, but the same command causes errors and warnings from a script while entirely failing to sort the correct files. The common example I see for this involves commands like this: Code: rsync -Rav `find /home/ -ctime -7 -print` /path/to/home_backup The probl (HowTos)
