cron job to create and move backup from ubuntu to windows.

HI Folks,

This is Kishore and i am new to Ubuntu and SVN and please some one help me in creating a cron job for my svn backup every day at 10:30 pm

I already created a cron job which looks like

30 10 * * * svnadmin dump /home/administrator/svnrepository >svn1 when i

run command directly i am getting whole backup and it's size is 3.6 gb

but when i run through cron job the backup size is only 9 mb.

So finally my requests are 1. cron job for taking complete svn backup at

10:30 pm daily and 2. cron job to copy the SVN backup in to my windows

system in d drive and this must be run every day at 11:30 pm.

Thanks in Advance


Kishore Kumar.

Try unison to get a copy of it moved to another location (both windows and linux clients that work for the most part.)
