# back up files and dir to a time format tgz file.
# you could add this script to crontab
#

import os
import time


source=['/home/zhouhh/test/','/home/zhouhh/test1/']
print ' backup files:',source

target_dir='/home/zhouhh/backup/'
target=target_dir+time.strftime('%Y%m%d%H%M%S')+'.tar.gz'


cmd='tar -zcvf %s %s '%(target,' '.join(source))

if os.system(cmd)==0 :
    print 'successfull backup to ',target
else:
    print 'failed backup'

可以将这个脚本加入crontab中,定期备份文件。如需要备份到windows,需要先mount windows分区,然后将目标地址修改为mount到的分区目录。
