Back up feature in FC5 using rsync
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
is a back up feature considered, and I would like to suggest rsync
for this with the following arguments
rsync -avWHRx --delete --delete-excluded --log-format='%i %f %l'
--exclude-from=$(HOME)/.rsync-exclude-list source destination
# -a symbolic links, devices, attributes, permissions,
ownerships etc are preserved and recursive dirs.
# -v verbose
# -R relative
# -W whole files
# -H presurve hardlinks
# -x one file system
# --delete delete files on dest side, that aren't on the src side
# --delete-excluded also delete excluded files on receiver
After such back up, can the partition be made bootable and boot. So exact is it.
Thanks - rsync is definitely an option, but it will ultimately be up to the
person who takes on that project. One of the projects for the Google
SummerOfCode is to create a per-user backup tool, so I imagine that will have
some bearing on this project as well.
