My script tars a folder in my /home/user directory and saves it all in a backup folder. However, when I open each of the tar.gz all of them have the directory /home/user and then the folders and files I wanted to compress.
#!/bin/bash if [ ! -d ~/backup ]; then mkdir ~/backup fi for i in `ls ~/folder`; do echo "~/folder/$i" if [ -d ~/folder/$i ]; then tar -zcf ~/backup/$i.tar.gz ~/folder/$i fi done
What can I do to prevent /home/user to be saved?
