I'm trying to make incremental backups with rsync (I'm reading
But I can't backup a file with old owner when the change on the file is
only the owner (content is unchanged).
rsync -av -e ssh --link-dest=$PWD/backup.1/ --numeric-ids --delete
root at myhost.mydomaine.org:/var/www backup.0
If I look at the owner of $PWD/backup.1/test-file (it's an exemple),
it's always link to backup.0/test-file, so the old owner is lost.
I'm using rsync version 2.6.4 protocol version 29 (on debian sarge)
Is it a normal behavior of rsync ?
Thank you by advance,
