You're right, it is getting repetitive, but thank you for the advice, I'll
look into backuppc

ok, forget about rsync. forget about which backup script is better, and
which isn't. forget about how I get the data onto the order server. I don't
care about backups, or rsync, or backuppc or bacula or amanda, or R1soft

let's keep the question simple. WHICH filesystem would be best for this type
of operation? SMB, NFS, or iSCSI?

Kind Regards
