comment Problem in redirecting standard input and output
Thanks. great help. Don't mind me asking but should I have put this in unix.stackexchange.com instead of askubuntu. I mean these two are very alike.

comment How to run a command within a time duration per min/sec?
Tell me if I'm wrong - do ya mean dir: <remote dir>, {}: <for files>(how will it identify the file by name) and directory: <for local dir>. Mind my writing.

looks good. Will it work for scp? my data is on remote server. I have used ssh-keygen for the password less scp. Used my public key for the authentication. see- linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-general-1/…

@Tom Regner and @Karthik T, This rsync stuff looks great. Too bad can't upvote you guys.

comment How to run a command within a time duration per min/sec?
right! sorry. I am heading towards a new approach now - I know at what time my server is going to create the files, I will be doing the copying after an hour. This way It will give server enough time to create backup. (my server is taking 10-15min to create one whole backup archive of ~100mb). Off course this is a static way of doing it.

can't there be a better way instead iterating 3600 times.

this is better. Thanks. As @Karthik T said what if we do the copying as soon as the file is created. I think, it will overwhelm the server because we don't know how much time it is going to take before the next backup.

Downloading backup from server is nothing but copying it, but I don't know what to copy because I don't know the names of those three files and I just can't copy the whole folder from server because it may contain a lot of data. pushing the backup from server to client is a better idea. But what if server is overwhelmed by the backup process.
