do I have to?
You should have guessed, this is stuff I need to do, but have not yet started (or at least started but no attempt to document) Just because it's here though, I still may never do it.

write a script to delete folders older than 12 weeks (so keep 12 rolling backups) - Should this be a manual process for sanity checking?
cron job to check backup log for 'Finished' so we know the job got to the end
email log after each backup
Auto delete files
#Count files less than a week old
all_files_found=$(ls -l “/home/charles/testarea” | wc -l); weekold_files_found=$(find “/home/charles/testarea” -daystart -type f -mtime +6 | wc -l);
right_now=$(date +“%x %r %Z"
#Write report of action echo “List ” $all_files_found “files found on $right_now by $USER” echo “Find ” $weekold_files_found “more than a week old files found on $right_now by $USER” #########
