rsync is a very useful tool for me to backup from Max OS X
to a linux server. However, would developers please add one
When rsync runs on an OS X machine and the source files are
in hfs+ (or hfs) filesystem, copy the resources fork to a
file with filename starts with a dot and append the original
filename. That's the current behaviour of samba client on
OS X interacting with samba server on linux.
The feature is important, as without the resources fork,
some programs (like ProTools and Media 100 NLE) refuse to
open the copied files.
Thank you for consideration.
