Yet another backup script solution
Authored by: vykor on Jun 07, '06 09:15:35AM

There's a caveat with ditto. Despite its attempt to preserve metadata, it actually fails to preserve creation dates. If you're in a position where file creation date is important, you should consider make your backups with something else or have the driver script note and restore the proper dates as it executes.
