You have misread the documentation.  It should be

	flexbackup -set home


	flexbackup -home

When diagnosing problems with a cron job, it's good practice to start by
running the task directly from the command line.  This helps you
identify any problems with the task itself, as opposed to any that might
be caused by misconfiguration of cron.  It's even better practice to do
this with a task as a trial run, before setting it up as a cron job.


I unfortunately do not know how to turn cheese into gold.
