    I run rsync nightly, to the same directory, without running into any issues. Of course there are some configurations within rsync to keep in mind when going the route of one backup directory versus rotation, mainly regarding the fact that you want to tell rsync to delete files within the backup directory that are not within the source directory. I dont believe it is on by default, so something to keep in mind.

    This link should really help those looking for an OSE backup solution locally or across a network. It's a full script and you just have to apply user/passwd and path to share:
