Add option to check and repair in background

xsibackup --check[=fast|full] [--run-mode=background] --mail-to[=some@email.com] /path/to/repository

xsibackup --repair [--run-mode=background] --mail-to[=some@email.com] /path/to/repository

Should detach from terminal, perform the check in background, and email a report about the check/repair.

Re: Add option to check and repair in background

Thank you for your feedback, we'll study adding a report at the end of --check & --repair options.
In regards to detaching, nothing prevents you from sending the job to the background:

# Send to the background, keep connected to the current 
# terminal though (the job would end if you close the TTY).
xsibackup --repair /path/to/repository &
# Send to the background & detach from current TTY
nohup xsibackup --repair /path/to/repository &
