Ya something like that. Anyway of making check to see if the unrar was
found and successfully extracted before deleting the daydirs? Also I
notice that some of the older clients that are using the DOS based
version have their rar's first file as .r01 instead of .rar (older rar
version would be the reason for the extension difference I would
guess). Thanks for the help btw.

Hm, ok, something like this then

for clientdir in /backup/*; do
cd $clientdir
for daydir in $clientdir/*; do
if [ ! -e $rarfile ]; then
unrar x $rarfile
[ $? -eq 0 ] && rm -rf $daydir
