I currently have this which works but isn't as tidy as I'd like; mkdir -p backup/{daily/{directories,databases,logs},weekly/{directories,databases,logs},monthly/{directories,databases,logs}} Is it possible to nest the directories,databases,logs part so as to not have to have it 3 times in the command?

No need for nesting:

mkdir -p backup/{daily,weekly,monthly}/{directories,databases,logs}
