I found this thread 
http://www.mail-archive.com/dirvish@dirvish.org/msg01457.html and I 
copied the script from it. Had to do a bit fiddling to get syntax 
correct, which was a bit corrupted in places due to the html format 
mailinglist thing.

Trying to understand the caveats you write about, but not sure I see any 
real caveats.

Anyways last successful backup of my laptop is dated 2012-12-10, which 
is scheduled to expire on 17th. So I won't attach my laptop to my 
network for week, and I'll check the available backup sets on 18th.
