My backup script works

Earlier I wrote about my home-rolled backup script. Yesterday, I got the unfortunate optunity to test for real if the script worked as inteded, as my home partition’s filesystem was corrupted.

I’m happy to report that the script worked perfectly. I got all my data back without any data loss 😀 The thing that took the longest time was to convince myself that no data was lost and that the backup really was better than the filesystem that had been fixed by fsck.

The only thing which is nagging me is that the corruption appears to have happened right after I took the backup. I just hope that my script isn’t to be blamed. But how could it? I run it as an normal user…
