Hi there

I am new to the list.

Please tall me how the rsync work to compare two directorys when mirroring.
Is the modify date or it has it`s own database ???
I was trying to mirror my ftp site to another server.
But the data is too many and it`s too big ( around 4G ).
And my bandwidth is tight.
So I can`t just mirror it,
I have to copy the datas from one to another.
And trying to cut down the treffic.

Any suggestions ,please ???

Thanks in advinced
