how do you rename files on for backup?

@twee just so you can change your config file back in case you made an error...nothing huge

@koyu "yyyy.mm.dd.<filename>.ext.backup" when i backup important files.

unimportant files, just get 1:1 mirrored and left like that :AsukaShrug:

@koyu I just name the backups the same as the original, that way I can just copy everything from the backup drive over to the main seamlessly. That, or make a bit by bit copy of the original drive

@koyu On a more serious note, I put them in a backup directory.

@koyu mostly file.ext.old, using something like `cp file.ext{,.old}` or with mv, depending on what I do.
