My Backup script

Nothing like vacation to do and go back to my backup routine and improve it a bit.

I mainly put everything in a script, added the the status and scrub of the backup_freenas_rsync script by K. Raquel Sanborn.

In the script I do not try to handle all contingencies, simply to be careful, and bail out with a helpful error message if things are strange, assuming that then manual intervention will be required. Normally I use the following script to run it and keep a log, after having mounted the backup media and started a screen as describe in my backup routine.

For the record currently a scrub of the backup takes just shy of 12 hours.
