In differentially updating a full clone with rsync, I don't want to be
creating duplicate files in something that is intended for restoring a
working volume, so I included the -H option. Unfortunately that bring
me back to the conflict in OS X :-(
The specific error message encountered with --inplace already included
an tested an adding just -H for testing:
rsync: open "/Volumes/LaCie_Disk_B/System/Library/CoreServices/BootX"
failed: Operation not permitted (1)
Maybe I can come up with some fun and games to salvage the effort.
