|Also, a space won't work for $2 because an unescaped space is treated as a whitespace. You could try|
sudo filetool.sh backup \ hdd4 project_$(date +%F)
Note, two spaces after \
sudo filetool.sh backup " " hdd4 project_$(date +%F)
Ok, note the last part of my signature (I must have had one of those). If a character doen't work put a \, if a string doesn't work put it in quotes. As long as I have been writing in PERL I should have known better.
The example was just by way of illustration of the functionality. I hand name most old archive versions because I may not make a copy to roll back to until I am doing something thay may go completly wrong so I may call todays backup 2008_june. But an automatic date stamp as an option wouldn't be hard.
(In fact I'm gonna give that a quick go right now)
