Backup Script

This is a backup script that I found online that I use to back up data on my home file server. It’s your standard bash script using tar and logger to make full and incremental backups. I figured that if I was going to use it I should at least give it the appropriate props. I changed it up so that I could do backups more than once a day as well as log results to the syslog. I also added a line to remove files older than 6 days. I added this because the weekly backups were a little too big and I had to delete the previous weeks before making the current weeks. Not the best DR strategy, but oh well.
