3. A better way to back up these files might be to keep the original names while copying them. Make another copy of each file listed in to_be_previewed.txt, adding ".backup" onto the end of each filename. (Hint: remember the "-I" option!)
4. ADVANCED: we've made a bit of a mess now, and it's time to clean up. Make a new directory called 'garbage', which you will move all these new files into it by combining the ``find`` tool with ``xargs`` and ``mv``. Use ``find`` to find all files in the current directory that were last modified less than ten minutes ago, and ``xargs`` with ``mv`` to change their location. BE CAREFUL!
..Hint:: you'll need to check out the options available for ``find``, and you might consider using the "-p" option with ``xargs`` to help avoid accidentally deleting something that you might regret!) Once you've moved the files, check the contents of the 'garbage' directory and, if you're sure that you don't want any of those files anymore, delete them and the directory.
