I'm running a nightly CRON job to back up by database just in case somebody gets into it and decides to have some fun. In addition, I've got a local copy of my site. However, there are a few dynamically user created folders that I'd also like to backup just in case somebody wreaks havoc on my site. Is there any easy way to set up some sort of automatic local back-up that "gets" a set of folders, the folder structure, and the files, aka the way that I could do it non-automatically through Dreamweaver?

Thank you,


PS I don't want to abuse this forum, so just FYI I posted a similar post in the PHP forum hoping to get a PHP solution. Since nobody has responded there, my guess is that a PHP solution would be pretty involved. However, please feel free to delete if it isn't appropriate to ask this in the more general setting!
