Ideally the latter, although I don't think in the end it would make any difference (as it probably would mean delete them all). > Have you considered ZFS (full/incremental) snapshots and partitioning > your pool into areas based on backup priority? No, this is completely inapplicable for several reasons (data is on a Linux based NAS which can only use Ext3, data is already prioritized and I'm just talking about high priority, etc...). > With ZFS you can frequently create incremental snapshots for important > locations and stream them into a backup file. I know and I'm using this in several other situations. However here I'm collecting data from several sources (including Windows PCs, so ZFS is out of question). bye & Thanks av.
