Hi guys,

Many thanks with your help on getting my backup script working with relative paths and LVM snapshots. I have it working pretty well now, and I thought I would let everyone see the finished product.

I have published it on my wiki at

There is still a few things that I need to tidy up with this script, but for the time being, I am pretty happy with it.

If anyone has any criticism or suggestions, please feel fee.
