I'm not on the list but I just wanted to throw my positive feedback out
there. I've been using rsync to backup work that I generate within a
lab to an offsite system. If I lost this data ...
In standard community fashion, though, I want to throw an idea out
there. It would be nice if there were an option like:
Currently I run a cron job which copies files offsite nightly. Once a
month, though, I use the --delete option to get rid of cruft.
It would be _nice_, though, if I could delete things that were older
than a month instead of a simple comparison between what's on the sender
and the receiver.
This way files would have a known age of 30 days or whatever before they
get tossed. As it is, the interval I can regress to has to do with the
time of the month, which is just too close to real life ...
If there is a better way to submit suggestions I will do so upon hearing
Thanks for rsync. I use it every day.
