Incremental flash backup tool

I recently decided that I would back up my documents to a high capacity flash disk. Thus I wrote a backup tool.
  • Dead simple. Something you'd write in an hour, so it won't mess you up by having volumes of code, weird interfaces, complicated man pages, or obscure back up formats.
  • The flash disk is a mirrored filesystem, so no special tools are required to read the backup.
  • The existing backed-up filesystem is updated if the backup command is re-issued.
  • Specified directories are recursively copied; hidden files are not copied. Thus one can flag large files that should not be backed up: make them hidden.
  • Eventually needs support for checksums, but I'm not too worried at the moment.
The program is public domain. Download and run it. Copy its example backup command line into a shell script. In my case, I use something similar to:

  % python D:\ D:\Documents D:\Code G:\Backup

1 Cutting relief: This is done through:
Remove all removable accessories from the furniture, including drawers, shelves, handles, and pillows.
Decomposable parts include beds, cupboards and dining tables with floor-to-ceiling and coffee tables with a marble surface and kitchen cabinets.
2 Tame Size: A common drawback in moving furniture is the large, even lightweight, piece of furniture that we encounter in relation to the possibility of passing through the doors or against the height of the ceiling.

Remove doors.
Load the object (such as the chair and the large seats) with the help of more than one individual to be able to pass it around the corner of the door, or load it in an existing shape and then slash it when scrolling.
Extremely long panels carry in a horizontal position.
3 Use of manual techniques in transportation: such as conveyor belts and wheeled manual transmission devices designed to move large weights such as refrigerator or washing machine etc.
