I am going to use rsync to back up some files from a remote system
(running BSD) to my home Linux system.
The remote BSD system has:-
rsync version 2.5.6 protocol version 26
My home system has:-
rsync version 2.6.8 protocol version 29
I have shell access on the remote system and can run cron jobs etc. so
I can run the backup from either end. I there anything to choose
between the ends? I.e. is it better to run a new[er] rsync to an
older remote one or vice versa?
Also, while I'm about it, can rsync remove empty directories left
after using the --delete option?
