My Rsync Back Up Command

My harddisk sustained some data corruption tonight and I lost the notes from the first Michael Twyman lunchtime lecture and today’s James Moseley lecture, which is most frustrating. So I bumped ‘sort out backups’ to the top of the TODO list and now have the following rsync copy going every 10 minutes:

rsync -e ssh --recursive --links --perms --times --group --owner --devices --specials --verbose --executability --partial --progress --human-readable /home/dave/Documents/MATD
