Why it's a mess to backup image files + sidecar files at the same time
? both are stored in collection at the same place and use the same
file name prefix..

Personalty, i backup my whole collection to a NAS using rsync without
any problem. Restoring collection after a crash on host computer work
like a charm. XMp side car will be parsed to restore DB...
