Hi to All,
I want to create crontab in order to run a script that backs up my local files to my remote server. The problem is that if there are too many files to transfer (Example: I ripped a DVD in the last hour) the actual backup may take longer than 60 minutes. So I want to make script to check if my backup script, based on rsync, is running. If rsync is still running then do nothing and exit the script. If it is not running, execute the script as normal.If the specific rsync finished with success , then send an email.
Any help is much appreciated. Many thanks..
