comment How do I delete all but 10 newest files in Linux?
@HaukeLaging I am quite sure you got something wrong. Mind the + before the number. It makes tail not print the last n elements but all elements beginning from the n'th. I checked in again and the command should definitely remove only elements older than 10 most recent files under all circumstances.

comment Using NTFS hard links to combine full/differential backups
The technique you describe is exactly what rsnapshot (seems to be down ATM) implements in Unixoid OS. It is definitely possible and works very well. Unfortunately for you rsnapshot doesn't run on Windows (that's why I write this as a comment only). But the FAQ mentions something about remote syncing Windows clients. If you have Unixoid machines around maybe this would work for you. I don't know any Windows equivalents of rsnapshot.

comment How to (cleanly) dismount sshfs when mounted on a NFS mount point?
I tried this but got permission denied. Of course an ordinary umount must fail when run as non-root user.

Did you use the correct path? Obviously /path/to/your/logs is just made up for you to enter the correct path. To find the bug execute the parts ls -t /path/... and ls -t /path/... | tail -n +11 alone and check if the result is correct.
