Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I have setup (I hope!!), some crontabs.


These are:


00 19 * * 1-5 time rsync -av /var/CommuniGate / >/rsync.log

15 12 * * 1-5 cp -al /var/CommuniGate /var/Snap12:15

15 08 * * 1-5 cp -al /var/CommuniGate /var/Snap08:15

15 16 * * 1-5 cp -al /var/CommuniGate /var/Snap16:15

00 09 * * 1 cp -al /var/CommuniGate /var/SnapMonWeekly


What I am trying to achieve is a full copy of the CommuniGate folder at 19:15 every Monday – Friday.


A snap shot of the CommuniGate folder at 12:15, 08:15, and 16:15 everyday.

And a weekly Snapshot.


Would this work? Would the Snap12:15, 08:15 & 16:15 overwrite itself everyday?


Thanks in advance.
