This is a simple wrapper for the awesome rsync-time-backup script by Laurent Cozic. Through clever use of hard links rsync-time-backup greatly speeds up incremental backups and saves disk space.

The wrapper script is for my internal NAS environment. The script selects either production or Dev/QA NAS based on the server name. The script will then mount the correct NFS share, run various checks, prep the target folder and launch the backup. You can download the script here.
