Backing home data into an external drive

Backup is good to be performed regularly .

But when come to practice.. tend to missed out.

Hence.. i think after 6month since last backup.

rsync -avr /home/namran/* /media/disk-2/home/namran

but the result was something like this..

sent 54270661492 bytes  received 8031667 bytes  13605387.43 bytes/sec
total size is 60171025862  speedup is 1.11
rsync error: some files/attrs were not transferred (see previous errors) (code 23) at main.c(1042) [sender=3.0.7]

now which files got NOT transferred?
1GB worth of data missing ?

Hmm..probably the one with “root” level files.. which is probably not needed
or might just need clean up only.

find /home/namran/Desktop -mtime +90 -exec rm {}\;

to delete files that had not been modified since last 90days.

find /home/namran/Download -atime +90 -exec rm {}\;

to delete files that had not been accessed since last 90days.

p/s : wondering what will be removed.. ?
try this ..

find /home/namran/Desktop -mtime +90 -exec echo {} \;

    there are few mistakes there.
    1)the notebook is Macbook not Macbook Pro
    2)the LCD is 22-inch. Couldn’t afford to buy 32″.
    3)last but not least, iPhone first generation ppl called iPhone 2G (EDGE) instead of G1 coz the term G1 led to confusion with HTC/Google Android G1

    :p . Just my 2 cent.

    No need to compare lah … if you do that forever you will not be satisfied with what you have, especially when it comes to material things. There will always be someone with a faster car, bigger house, cooler gadgets. You can spend forever in the rat race trying to keep up … or try to find happiness in the life that we already have.

    Attaining all those things come with more challenges attached as well. I believe God will grant us these once we are really ready for them.

    Life is like playing Lode Runner … need all sorts of strategies and tactics to survive and cope, and make it through the day. Once you have mastered them … what do you get? Next level, with more challenges! And is like that all the way … 😎
