Hi Pete,

In the last version of the batch file that you sent out, there is a 
comment that says "Try to get this file in place early to avoid race 
conditions in later test... Ignore for now. This file is present in the 
bbstore after a couple of runs of this batch file".

With the "sync-and-wait" command, all you need to do is create the file, 
sleep long enough so that bbackupd will consider it old enough to back up, 
and run "bbackupctl sync-and-wait". When it returns, the file should be 
backed up.

Cheers, Chris.
