Ooops I wouldn't do that.


#rsync -ahv --modify-window=3601  linux1::home/rdrive /home/

ie only look at files more than an hour only or if the file size has changed.

I copy from a Windows server to a Linux backup so I use:

set CYGWIN=nontsec
set bw=1500
rsync -azP  --exclude-from=D:\excluded.txt --delete-excluded --delete
--modify-window=3601 --bwlimit=%bw% abcd at windowsserver::share/
