Re: Questions with rsync



This is a very useful thread for me to follow. You asked some interesting questions that led to answers with complete rsync scripts provided. That's what I call a really great response!

It does help if you read `man rsync` and the web resources carefully. They can answer a lot of questions.

You may want to read a copy of the book "Backup and Recovery" by W. Curtis Preston. It was published by O'Reilly in 2007 and might even feature current technologies...and it is available from Amazon. Preston wrote an earlier book with almost the same title, whuch is out of print. That one is "Unix Backup and Recovery" and I have it here.

   Have you tried rdiff-backup ? It will do all this
for you ... and its
as easy to use as rsync alone.

Do rsync and rdiff-backup have the option of compression.
I think they just copy the files.
Is it possible to backup 20GB partition into 8GB or below 8GB using rsync or rdiff-backup?
