Hi guys,
I have this directory and I want to replicate
In this dir I have other dirs such as A B C D E
Now I want to replicate DIR in many steps
First I want to copy A B (EXCLUDING) C D and E but I want to use the
-delete option so that if in A and B I have unused files rsync will
delete them for me. But the problem is that rsync is trying to delete
also C D and E probably because of the exclude option in my config file
on the server side.
Am I doing something wrong?
