Automatic Backup Volume Checking

Initial Steps

The first step to this is to create a script which checks the following properties of a backup volume. In addition, there should be checks in place for available free disk space (check elsewhere in the developer pages for details).

  • permissions - support on Darwin since release v0.9.8r2
  • free disk space
  • locks (backup already running) - supported since release v0.9.8r1
  • HFS+ support on backup volume

Long Term Goals

The long term goals of Automatic Backup Volume Checking is to ensure that before a backup commences the backup volume will support various meta-data.
