I admit I may be misunderstanding the purpose here but, from your description, 
it sounds lke you're setting up an hourly mirror of /ftp/test/test1/test3 in 

The command line:

rsync -av /ftp/test/test1/test3/* /ftp/test/test1/

Should be all you need to do, but it depends on how the folders are 
structured. If you have a folder called /ftp/test/test1/test3/test3 then the 
above command line would likely break horribly.  Can I ask why you want to 
mirror the contents of a folder into its own parent folder?


  Thank YOU ALL !
