Compress all folders within a directory


This is a simple code I use to tar all the folders within your current directory and move those to /mnt/backup/ directory.

#!/bin/bash
mkdir /mnt/backup/`date +%Y%m%d`
for dir in */
do dir=`echo $dir | tr -d '/'`
echo $dir
tar czf $dir.tar.gz $dir
mv *.tar.gz /mnt/backup/`date +%Y%m%d`/
done
