Re: [jasspa] Backup files -- MEBACKUPSUB behavior vs docs
- I would not find this useful. IMO, ME is the wrong tool for this. I
would use 'rsync' and 'cron' to set up a mirroring strategy, instead.
In fact this is what I'm going to implement very shortly to prevent the
problem I had when my Windows hung and ME wrote my file with zero length
the other day. (N.b. I don't necessarily need my files saved
up-to-the-minute; it's enough to have them up-to-the-day.)
