Hello

I am trying to do a backup of a directory as follows:
mksquashfs /media/disco1 /media/disco2/disco1.sqsh -no-progress -root-becomes `date +%d-%m-%Y` -keep-as-directory

The problem is that it creates a directory structure as follows:
$ ls
19-05-2013 disco1
$ cd 19-05-2013
$ ls
18-05-2013 disco1

Isn't possible to create a structure as follows?
18-05-2013 19-05-2013 disco1

Thanks

I am not sure whether I understand your question correctly, but my guess is that if you omit -keep-as-directory it should do what you want.

The problem is that omitting that option I get each subfolder of "disco1" renamed when appending instead of "disco1" directory
