I am trying to update an mp3 archive from my hard disk to an mp3 player
over a usb link, e.g. after ripping a few new cd's. I seem not to be
able to get rsync to traverse the archive and only write the new files
accross. Instead it copies everything over again, which takes very
I have tried some combinations of options, e.g.
rsync -va SRC DEST
rsync -va --no-whole-file SRC DEST
Each time I get something like:
wrote 51751332 bytes read 135874 bytes 437866.72 bytes/sec
total size is 51761152 speedup is 1.00
, which I understand as that a straight/full copy took place, even
though the data is already at the destination.
I could not find anything related in the archives or Google, although I
could have missed it.
I have Cygwin's rsync v 2.6.2 on a Win2000 PC.
