Python Script To Backup Linux Directory To Windows

I found out that my blog backup script was failing so I had to rewrite it to handle dropped connections to my remote sftp server. In the process I broke out as much of the code as I could into a module that I could share. The module is backupremote.py in my miscpython repository. Might be helpful to someone else. It copies the directory tree on a remote Linux server down to a directory on a Windows machine (i.e. a laptop). Uses sftp.

The earlier version of this script was in this blog post: https://www.bobbydurrettdba.com/2018/05/30/python-script-to-backup-remote-directory-using-sftp/
