    backup files to backup hard drive - cp?


    I want to backup my files to a secondary backup drive.
    What would be the correct way of doing this?

    I thought about simply doing a cp to the new drive in a shell script however that may be resource intensive.

    Can someone advise me on what would be best and to give me some example code for a backup script.

    Thanks in advance.

    How often do you need to backup?
    rsync would be a good option
    rsync -a --delete /disk1 /disk2
