I currently use a simple cpio command to backup my system manually every morning (SCO OpenServer 5.0.5). However I would like to setup a script in the cron to run this command everyday at a specific time but also run a verification and have it email me the standard error and verification results, as well as if there was a failure. Does anyone have a simple script that will does this. I was told it can be done in about 4 line of shell scripting. I just don't know how.
