===================

Creating your customized script for backing up sensitive and important files are not actually advisable. This is because you are dealing with the most sensitive files of your organization. Remember that scripts are not perfect and could encounter bugs and errors. It is still better to use backup software as they were created and tested perfectly for your backup needs.
