I was planning to use rsync to backup to a second drive, but I ran out of
swap space. No problem, I will let rsync do it a few directories at a time
overnight when the computer usually sits idle except for incomming email.
I have 2 question:
1. How much memory does each file to be copied need. Obvisiouly I have too many
2. Why does this command work:
rsync -ax /usr/xx /backup/usr/
rsync -ax /usr/xx/ /backup/usr/
refuses to create the directory xx in /backup/usr and copies
the contents of the directory to /backup
Happens on both 2.4.7Pre4 and 2.5.0 just released.
