    Every day I make incremental backups to second HD. ( OK )

    After that, I have a script of my own that performs an external backup (every day) via RSYNC

    However, the source folder now changes its name to the current date and that gives me a problem.

    Previously I was doing the external backup via rsync like this:

    Folder >>> DAILY (current server) to folder >>. DAILY >>>>> (external backup server)

    Since now the source folder changes name every day ( to current date), and I can not do more rsync incremental anymore out!

    Is it possible to use the name DAILY instead of the CURRENT DATE?

    Thank you

    My problem is happening because I do incremental external backups via rsync.

    But now the source folder changes name every day !!!

    Any suggestion ???
