Thank you for your suggestion but.. I'll have around 1000 such files
in the whole directory and it becomes hard to manage such output
because again I've to take this snapshot before backing up the data
and have to do the same and compare both when the data gets restored,
just to verify whether the restore happened successfully or not.
Thank you,
Venu Madhav
