Thanks for the information. I do know the merits of rdiff and a few
other options, however for the specific need that I have cp does seems
to be the best option. Also, I'd like to keep this thread on-topic as
regardless of what backup method I use, I'd very much like to know
what the files on my machine are doing there. For the time being I
accept the black majic of what happens on most of the file system,
however, the files in /home/user are very interesting to me at the
moment as they must be specific to my user account.
