Subject: Is rsync supposed to resume?
I recently got caught out by the behaviour in rsync and
am not sure if it is a bug or not.
I was running rsync like:
rsync -avz -e ssh --progress <source> <destination>
The source was a directory structure. Partway through the
transfer I stopped it with a Ctrl-c. Later I ran the same
command again and it completed.
<Cut out irrelevant confusion here>
I did a checksum on the files in the source and destination
directories and the checksums on one of the files was different.
I think it was on the file that I stopped rsync on.
>From what I read on the manpage, I thought rsync was supposed
to create a copy of the the source on the destination. Is
this not the case?
After testing a bit I found that adding the --checksum option
provided the behaviour I needed. Can someone offer some
rsync version on source:
rsync version 2.5.6 protocol version 26
rsync version on destination:
rsync version 2.5.4 protocol version 26
Thanks for a great tool like rsync!
