I have finished testing rsync and it works like a charm. As promised, below is the finished shell script.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# *********************************************************************

# * Script Name : sysbck
# *
# * Description : Performs system backup to a remote NSF share

Consider adding -p and -t options to also preserve permissions and time.
Or use rsync -auvH that will also preserve links and other special files (something that cp -rp cannot do).
-a means archive, see
Code:
man rsync

I have added the -t and -p qualifiers to my script.

Thanks to all that responded.
