I use this comand to back up my entirely drive to a second drive. Because the
second drive is smaller I have excluded my movies directory. I also excluded
the /mnt/ diectory, becous I dont want to back up the backup. This part works
It's the --delete option I cant get to work. I want rsync to delete files on
the backup(destination) drive, that I have deleted or moved on the souce
drive. Therefore I added the --delete option, but it doesent work for me.
the files and directories tht I deleted still exists on the backup, and the
files and directories that I moved are duplicaded on the backup.
Is there anyone who can help me out.
Here is the comand I use:
rsync -av --exclude "/**/movies/" --exclude "/mnt/" --delete /
