I have used a script for some years which is based on rsync. I will attach
the file and you can adapt it to your needs if you like it. Note that this
sends the backup to a usb drive that is attached to the machine. it is
relatively straightforward to adapt it to work across a LAN or also across
the internet to push or pull updates to/from remote machines.
