    I have a server at home, I am setting up a cron job on the server to pull my /root/backups/cpbackup in via rsync.

    My questions are:

    What time does the cpbackup directory get updated with the new backup's and is it bad to run my rsync script at the same time? Should I run my rsync script maybe 4 hours later? How long is recommended?

    What do these backup's provide me with? Do I need to back up anything else, like databases? I am preparing for a harddrive failure (been getting email's about SMART), is there anything else I need to do to prepare?
