A very short backup script which I originally created to use for my
own purposes and have enhanced for distribution.

It simply asks for a source folder/volume and a destination folder/volume.

If the two are the same it warns and quits.

If the two are different it clones the source to the dest and adds a text 
file which contains the time and date (according to the local system values). 



Thanks to TribbleSmasher, kolla and nbache on Amiga.org for help. I've
found some strange quirks of different types of variables especially
with spaces in paths so have got around this by echoing a local shell
variable to an ENV: variable.
