   24 ### STRUCTURE ###
   25 
   26 Rsync-backup is meant to be run from cron. You have to enable keyed login
   27 to your backup server, so it can run without human interaction. The script
   28 is capable of running only once per day. It is not a problem to run it less
   29 often, but keep in mind that the daily backups are not daily. Weekly and
   30 monthly will be though.
   31 The program keeps track of when the next rotation of a certain target should
   32 be done. If you run the backup more than once a day, it will only rotate
   33 once, but in all cases it will do rsync. So while snapshots are only made
   34 maximum once per day, you can sync more often (overwriting an existing
   35 snapshot).
